This recently described species has a moderately small population which is declining owing to habitat loss. It is consequently classified as Near Threatened.
|Previously published Red List assessments:|
|Range Description:||Pyrilia aurantiocephala is known only from a few localities encompassing the Lower Madeira and Upper Tapajós rivers in Amazonian Brazil. Given that the species is currently known only from two habitat types and from a relatively small area, the population is unlikely to be much larger than 10,000 individuals, and it is therefore considered to be Near Threatened. More records are likely to be forthcoming now that it has been formally recognised as a species, and these may clarify its exact status.|

|Population:||The population is preliminarily estimated to number at least 10,000 individuals, roughly equating to 6,700 mature individuals. This requires confirmation.|
Trend Justification: This species is suspected to lose 8.8-13.1% of suitable habitat within its distribution over three generations (21 years) based on a model of Amazonian deforestation (Soares-Filho et al. 2006, Bird et al. 2011). It is therefore suspected to decline by <25% over three generations.
|Current Population Trend:||Decreasing|
|Habitat and Ecology:||Individuals have been seen in gallery forest and in 'campinarana' forest (on white-sand soils).|
|Continuing decline in area, extent and/or quality of habitat:||Unknown|
|Generation Length (years):||6.9|
|Movement patterns:||Not a Migrant|
|Major Threat(s):||This region is under threat from logging (Gaban-Lima et al. 2002).|
Conservation Actions Underway
None is known. Conservation Actions Proposed
Survey potentially suitable sites. Study its ecological requirements. Effectively protect core areas of habitat within its suspected range.
