From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species has a restricted range in central Cuba, where it has been recorded from sea level up to 820m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It is associated with rocky areas in mesic, closed-canopy forests. It is restricted to these forest habitats and breeds by direct development.

Population

It is common in suitable habitat, but is patchily distributed.

Population Trend

decreasing

Major Threats

The major threat to this species is habitat loss and degradation, as a result of deforestation for agriculture, the development of tourism infrastructure, and the disturbance of habitat by tourist activities.

Conservation Actions

It occurs in a few protected areas, but these are not well managed for biodiversity conservation and the habitat within them continues to be degraded. The existing protected areas network is in need of more effective and strengthened management.

Red List Status

Endangered (EN)

Rationale

Listed as Endangered because its Area of Occupancy is less than 500km2, its distribution is severely fragmented, and there is continuing decline in the extent and quality of its habitat in central Cuba.
