Kingdom Phylum Class Order Family
ANIMALIA CHORDATA AVES PASSERIFORMES TYRANNIDAE

Scientific Name: Phyllomyias burmeisteri
Species Authority: Cabanis & Heine, 1859
Common Name(s):
English Rough-legged Tyrannulet
Taxonomic Notes: Phyllomyias burmeisteri (Sibley and Monroe 1990, 1993) was provisionally split into P. burmeisteri, P. zeledoni and P. leucogonys by Stotz et al. (1996). This treatment is not adopted following AOU (1998) who lump zeledoni with P. burmeisteri and SACC (2005) who lump leucogonys with P. burmeisteri.

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/Compiler(s): Temple, H.
Justification:
This species has a very large range, and hence does not 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 appears to be stable, and hence the species does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable 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.

Geographic Range [top]

Range Description: This species has a large, discontinuous range extending across Central and South America from Costa Rica to south-east Brazil. It inhabits humid tropical and subtropical evergreen forest, sometimes venturing into forest adge and mature secondary growth, from 475-1850 m. It occurs in many protected areas within its large range, including at least three national parks in Brazil (Fitzpatrick 2004).
