Taxonomy [top]

Kingdom Phylum Class Order Family
ANIMALIA CHORDATA AVES PASSERIFORMES ORIOLIDAE

Scientific Name: Sphecotheres viridis
Species Authority: Vieillot, 1816
Common Name/s:
English Timor Figbird, Green Figbird
Taxonomic Notes: Sphecotheres viridis (Sibley and Monroe 1990, 1993) has been split into S. viridis and S. vieilloti (which includes flaviventris) following Andrew (1992). S. viridis (Christidis and Boles 1994) does not match S. viridis (Sibley and Monroe 1990, 1993) because it includes viridis, vieilloti, flaviventris and hypoleucus (the latter is treated as a separate species by Sibley and Monroe 1990, 1993).

Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Least Concern ver 3.1
Year Published: 2012
Date Assessed: 2012-05-01
Assessor/s: BirdLife International
Reviewer/s: Butchart, S. & Symes, A.
Facilitator/s: Butchart, S., Ekstrom, J.
Justification:
Although this species may have a restricted 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 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.
