|Taxonomic Source(s):||Christidis, L. and Boles, W.E. 2008. Systematics and taxonomy of Australian birds. CSIRO Publishing, Collingwood, Australia.|
|Taxonomic Notes:||Anthochaera chrysoptera (Christidis and Boles 1994) has been split into A. chrysoptera and A. lunulata following Sibley and Monroe (1990, 1993) and Christidis and Boles (2008).|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Least Concern ver 3.1|
|Reviewer(s):||Butchart, S. & Symes, A.|
This species has a very large range, and hence does not 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 is not known, but the population is not believed to be decreasing sufficiently rapidly to approach the thresholds 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.

|Population:||The global population size has not been quantified, but the species is described as common (Morcombe 2000; del Hoyo et al. 2008).|
Trend Justification: The trend direction for this population is difficult to determine given that there are both positive and negative processes suspected to be affecting it (Higgins et al. 2001).
|Current Population Trend:||Unknown|
