This subspecies is listed as Data Deficient due to an almost complete lack of information of the distribution of the subspecies. Most of the known range of this subspecies has been deforested, but over the past 300 or so years. Remaining forests are currently threatened by cultivation of illegal crops, coffee, mining, monoculture plantation, and cattle ranching. This subspecies is a priority for research and surveys are needed in remaining habitat - especially the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta and surrounding areas.
