|Scientific Name:||Actenoides monachus|
|Species Authority:||(Bonaparte, 1850)|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Near Threatened ver 3.1|
|Reviewer/s:||Butchart, S. & Symes, A.|
This species is considered Near Threatened, as it is likely to be undergoing a moderately rapid population decline as a result of on-going habitat destruction within its range.
|Range Description:||Actenoides monachus is restricted to Sulawesi (race monachus in north and central, race capucinus in east, south-east and south Sulawesi), Indonesia (BirdLife International 2001). It is generally considered to be uncommon, although it is highly inconspicuous. It is reported to be locally common in parts of Lore Lindu National Park, Dumgoa-Bone National Park and Tangkoko DuaSudara Nature Reserve.|

|Population:||The population size of this species has not been quantified, but it has been described as generally uncommon.|
|Habitat and Ecology:||This species occurs in dense primary and tall secondary lowland forest up to 900 m.|
|Major Threat(s):||Forest destruction within its elevation range has been extensive in recent decades, and its populations must have suffered a commensurate decline.|
Conservation Actions Underway
It occurs in several protected areas, including Lore Lindu National Park, Dumgoa-Bone National Park and Tangkoko DuaSudara Nature Reserve. Conservation Actions Proposed
Clarify the taxonomic status of the two subspecies. Conduct repeated surveys of known and potential sites across Sulawesi in order to determine abundance and population trends. Conduct ecological studies to determine levels of tolerance of secondary habitats, particularly in areas where primary forests have been extirpated. Ensure the protection of existing forest reserves.
