Listed as Endangered because its extent of occurrence (EOO) is 120 km2, it occurs in two threat-defined locations, and there is continuing decline in the extent and quality of habitat due to agricultural activities, livestock, mining and logging.
|Previously published Red List assessments:|
|Range Description:||This species is known from the type locality (Murri) and from Las Orquideas National Park, both in Urrao and Frontino Municipalities in Antioquia Department, on the western flank of the Cordillera Occidental, Colombia, between 1,100–2,000 m asl. There is adequate habitat to the north of the current known distribution, but it has not yet been surveyed. It occurs in two threat-defined locations and its EOO is 159 km2.|

|Population:||It is an uncommon species. Due to ongoing decline in the extent and quality of habitat, the population is suspected to be decreasing.|
|Current Population Trend:||Unknown|
|Habitat and Ecology:||This species is usually found on low vegetation and in leaf-litter, inside cloud forests and very humid forest. It has not been recorded outside forest habitat, and does not tolerate degraded habitats. It breeds by direct development.|
|Continuing decline in area, extent and/or quality of habitat:||Yes|
|Movement patterns:||Not a Migrant|
|Use and Trade:||There are no records of this species being utilized.|
|Major Threat(s):||The main threats to the species are deforestation for livestock, illegal crops and mining in the type locality. Logging is also taking place in Orquideas National Park.|
This species occurs in Las Orquideas National Park, but the type locality remains unprotected.
Further habitat protection is required.
Further research is needed to determine whether this species occurs outside the two known localities.
