Population Status

Population size is not known for subspecies fuscicapilla, and therefore trends are difficult to determine because of uncertainty over potential impacts of habitat modification on population levels.

Subspecies crookshanki's status is uncertain; it is probably uncommon on the whole, but Gregg et al. (19) noted it was "fairly common above 900 m" on Fergusson Island. Prior to its discovery on Fergusson Island, this species was apparently known only from two specimens from Goodenough Island (4), suggesting that it was possibly not common.
