Several populations are in fragmented forests near the Reserva Ecológica Mache-Chindul and the Reserva Ecológica Cotacachi-Cayapas; one is protected inside the Río Palenque private reserve. A disjunct population has been reported in Pastaza and the specimen is under study. Previously considered as Vulnerable (Oldfield et al. 1998), but currently considered Endangered due to massive disturbance of coastal forest over the last 50 years. Apart from habitat destruction, no specific threats are known.
