Range Description

This is a recently described species that is present in the region of Panguana (at 220 m asl) and Serrania de Sira (at 800-1,380 m asl) in a relatively small area in the extreme eastern portion of Huanuco, central Amazonian Peru. It was recently recorded from Acre and Amazonas States in Brazil, where it is found at elevations above 1,380 m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It is an upland forest inhabitant. In Central Peru, the habitat is mainly covered with unexploited primary forest. The habitat type is not known for Brazil. It is presumed to breed by direct development.

Population

Its population is unknown.

Population Trend

stable

Major Threats

There are presumed to be no major threats. It is now a widespread species with large areas of suitable habitat remaining. There is some localized habitat loss to general human activities such as agriculture (crops, livestock etc.). In Peru, there has been a significant loss habitat through agriculture and colonization.

Conservation Actions

It is present in Reserva Comunal El Sira; this is specifically an indigenous people reserve. It is not known if this species is present in protected areas in Brazil.

Red List Status

Least Concern (LC)

Rationale

Listed as Least Concern in view of its likely wide distribution, occurrence in an area where its habitats are not significantly threatened, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
