Scientific Name: Hemitriccus cinnamomeipectus
Species Authority: Fitzpatrick & O'Neill, 1979
Common Name(s):
English Cinnamon-breasted Tody-tyrant, Cinnamon-breasted Tody-Tyrant

Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Vulnerable B1ab(iii) ver 3.1
Year Published: 2012
Date Assessed: 2012-05-01
Assessor(s): BirdLife International
Reviewer(s): Symes, A. & Butchart, S.
Contributor(s): Freile, J., Krabbe, N. & Lebbin, D.
Facilitator/Compiler(s): Capper, D., Isherwood, I., O'Brien, A., Sharpe, C J, Symes, A.
Justification:
This species has been uplisted to Vulnerable because its estimated extent of occurrence is very small and it is known from very few locations, and new information on deforestation caused by mining within its very small range confirms that the extent and quality of its habitat are both declining.

Geographic Range [top]

Range Description: Hemitriccus cinnamomeipectus is known only from a few localities on remote and isolated mountain ranges in extreme south Ecuador and north Peru, where it is rare to uncommon (Ridgely and Tudor 1994; Ridgely and Greenfield 2001; Schulenberg et al. 2007). There are records from the south Cordillera del Cóndor (Zamora-Chinchipe) and recently at Naytza (Morona-Santiago) (Ágreda et al. 2005), Ecuador, and Cajamarca, Peru, and from the Cordillera de Colán (Amazonas) and Abra Patricia (San Martín), Peru (Ridgely and Tudor 1994).

Population [top]

Population: The global population size has not been quantified, but this species is described as rare to uncommon.
Population Trend: Decreasing

Habitat and Ecology [top]

Habitat and Ecology: This poorly known flycatcher is restricted to the undergrowth of dense, mossy montane forest, at 1,700-2,200 m (Ridgely and Greenfield 2001, Schulenberg et al. 2007).

Systems: Terrestrial

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): The Cordillera de Colán is being deforested very rapidly for cash crops, particularly marijuana and coffee (Davies et al. 1997). In the Cordillera del Cóndor in Ecuador, silica mining (Ágreda et al. 2005) or gold mining (Ridgely and Greenfield 2001) are currently the main threats; some areas of the Cordillera del Cóndor in which the species previously occurred have been entirely denuded by gold mining (N. Krabbe in litt. 2011), and new open pit developments will destroy further habitat in which the species has been recorded (J. Freile in litt. 2012).

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: Conservation Actions Underway
It is protected within the 3,100 ha Abra Patricia-Alto Nieva Private Conservation Area (PCA) and also occurs in the 6,700 ha Abra Patricia-Alto Nieva Conservation Concession (D. Lebbin in litt. 2012).

Conservation Actions Proposed
Designate and effectively protect areas of montane forest within its range. Promote conservation of forests among local people. Study the species's ecology and determine its ability to persist in degraded and fragmented habitats. Survey unexplored parts of the Cordilleras del Cóndor and Colán.
