Its known range lies within the remote Parque Nacional da Serra do Divisor in Brazil and the adjacent Parque Nacional de la Sierra del Divisor in Peru, but it is believed to be common there. It has only recently been evaluated by BirdLife International where it has been given a status of Least Concern for the 2007 Red List.
