This recently-split species is very poorly known with very few confirmed records across the presumed range. There is insufficient information to estimate range size, population size or trend at present. For this reason it is classified as Data Deficient.
|Previously published Red List assessments:|
- 2012 – Data Deficient (DD)
- 2008 – Data Deficient (DD)
- 2004 – Data Deficient (DD)
- 2000 – Data Deficient (DD)
- 1994 – Lower Risk/least concern (LR/lc)
- 1988 – Lower Risk/least concern (LR/lc)
|Range Description:||Campephaga oriolina is known from the equatorial forests of south Cameroon, Gabon, the Congo (Dowsett-Lemaire 1997), south-west Central African Republic, east and north-eastern Democratic Republic of Congo but from a very few sightings throughout this range. A sighting in 1988 from Nigeria is now considered confirmed (though made before it was split from Western Wattled Cuckoo-shrike C. lobata) (Ash et al. 1989, Butchart 2007). Despite its potentially wide range, the species is undoubtedly very rare, but the reasons for this are unclear (F. Dowsett-Lemaire in litt. 1997). |
