Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Near Threatened ver 3.1
Year Published: 2012

This species is listed as Near Threatened because it has a moderately small, fragmented range and population, both of which are undergoing a continuing decline owing to habitat loss and degradation. However, relatively little is currently known about the population size, population structure and threats to this species.

Previously published Red List assessments:

Geographic Range [top]

Range Description:This species is found on the Philippines where it occurs on Luzon at Mt Polis, Mt Puguis, Mt Tabuan and Dipalayag (race anthonyi), and on Mindanao at Mt Pasian, Daggayan, Mt Kitanglad, Mt Kampalili, Mt McKinley and Mt Apo (race kampalili) and at Mt Malindang (race masawan). It is in relatively secure habitat but appears to occur naturally at low densities, and hence is a very uncommon species.

Population [top]

Population:This species is apparently rare, occurring at low densities within a restricted range. Hence, its population is not thought to be large: perhaps 10,000-19,999 individuals, equating to 6,667-13,333 mature individuals, rounded here to 6,000-15,000 mature individuals. Further information is needed to improve this estimate.

Trend Justification:  The population is suspected to be in decline owing to ongoing habitat destruction.
Current Population Trend:Decreasing
Additional data:
Number of mature individuals:6000-15000Continuing 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:It occupies mossy forest above 800 m.

Continuing decline in area, extent and/or quality of habitat:Yes
Generation Length (years):2.4
Movement patterns:Not a Migrant

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): As a forest associated species, deforestation may have had an impact at the lower limits of its altitudinal range.

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: Conservation Actions Underway
None are known.

Conservation Actions Proposed
Investigate potential threats and quantify more precisely the population size of the species. Protect areas of suitable habitat and safeguard against deforestation.
