Population Trend


Major Threats

Conservation Actions

It occurs in three reserves: Santa Tereza and Santa Lucia Estacion Biólogica; Reserva Biólogica Augusto Ruschi; and Reserva Particular do Patrimônio Natural Estação Veracruz.

Red List Status

Least Concern (LC)


Listed as Least Concern in view of its relatively wide distribution, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
