Although this species may have a small range, it is not believed to approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the range size criterion (Extent of Occurrence <20,000 km2 combined with a declining or fluctuating range size, habitat extent/quality, or population size and a small number of locations or severe fragmentation). The population trend appears to be stable, and hence the species does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population trend criterion (>30% decline over ten years or three generations). The population size has not been quantified, but it is not believed to approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population size criterion (<10,000 mature individuals with a continuing decline estimated to be >10% in ten years or three generations, or with a specified population structure). For these reasons the species is evaluated as Least Concern.
|Range Description:||Megascops nudipes occurs on Puerto Rico (to U.S.A.) (del Hoyo et al. 1999). The subspecies newtoni, from Puerto Rico's offshore islands and the Virgin Islands (to U.S.A.) is likely extinct on Vieques and is very rare and declining on the Virgin Islands (Raffaele et al. 1998, Konig and Weick 2008).|
