This species is known from New Guinea and adjacent islands, and appears to be inexplicably rare, with only three recent records from Papua New Guinea. There is no information on its likely distribution extent, population size or trends, although it may be threatened by logging. For these reasons, it is classified as Data Deficient.
|Previously published Red List assessments:|

|Range Description:||Todiramphus nigrocyaneus is a little-known species of New Guinea (Papua, formerly Irian Jaya, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea) and the adjacent islands of Salawati, Batanta and Yapen. There are only three recent records from Papua New Guinea: from Morehead (Trans-Fly), Madang and Lakekamu (Bellchambers et al. 1994, I. Burrows in litt. 1994, Mack 1998), although it may be more common in Papua (Beehler et al. 1986) where it was reported from Nimbokrang near Jayapura (Eastwood 1996). It appears to be inexplicably rare. |
