This species has a very small range and there are records from only two locations. Coca-growers have taken over forest within its altitudinal range, probably resulting in some reductions in this species's range and population. It is consequently classified as Endangered.

|Range Description:||Aulacorhynchus huallagae is known from only two localities in north-central Peru. It is uncommon at the type-locality in La Libertad, and apparently very rare in Río Abiseo National Park, San Martín. It has also been reported recently from Leymebambe (T. Mark in litt. 2003). It is predicted to occur to the north and south, but little of the area between the Cordillera de Colán, Amazonas, and the Carpish region, Huánuco, is accessible (Schulenberg and Parker 1997). However, it does not appear to occupy all potentially available forest, since there are no records from the relatively well-surveyed Carpish Mountains (Schulenberg and Parker 1997). |
