This species has an extremely small range, being known from the slopes of just two mountains. Although its habitat is not currently threatened, it should be monitored carefully for any evidence of future land-use changes within occupied areas. Land-use changes within its very restricted range could have serious impacts on the global population. It is currently listed as Near Threatened as it almost qualifies for listing as threatened under criterion B1ab(i,iii).

Geographic Range [top]

Range Description:Stachyris latistriata is endemic to Panay, Philippines, where it occurs on Mt Baloy, Mt Madja-as, and Dagsalan, upper Aklan River. It is common (described as the most abundant bird species) in montane mossy forest on Mt Baloy, as well as on Mt Madja-as. It is likely to occupy this habitat throughout the estimated 700 km2 of Panay's remaining closed-canopy high-elevation forest.

Population [top]

Population:The global population size has not been quantified, but the species is described as common (del Hoyo et al. 2007).

Trend Justification:  Data on population trends are lacking, but the habitats occupied by this species are unlikely to be affected by human activities owing to their steep, sloping nature. It is therefore suspected to be stable.
Current Population Trend:Stable

Number of mature individuals:UnknownContinuing decline of mature individuals:Unknown
Extreme fluctuations:NoPopulation severely fragmented:No
Continuing decline in subpopulations:Unknown
Extreme fluctuations in subpopulations:NoAll individuals in one subpopulation:No

Habitat and Ecology [top]

Habitat and Ecology:This species is known from montane mossy forest from 1,100 m to 1,900 m.

Continuing decline in area, extent and/or quality of habitat:Unknown
Generation Length (years):3.7
Movement patterns:Not a Migrant

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): This species is likely to be affected by the wholesale clearance of forest habitats as a result of logging, agricultural conversion and mining activities occurring within the range.

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: Conservation Actions Underway
No targeted conservation actions are known for this species.

Conservation Actions Proposed
Monitor populations and habitat trends at known sites throughout the range. Effectively protect significant areas of suitable forest at key sites, in both strictly protected areas and community-led multiple use areas.
