Range Description

Scytalopus robbinsi occupies a small known range at Azuay and El Oro on the Pacific slope in south-west Ecuador. Its population size has not been estimated but it is reportedly rarer than El Oro Parakeet Pyrhura orcesi (R. Ridgely in litt. 2003), which occupies a very similar range and whose population has been estimated at less than 1,000 individuals and declining. The species is suspected to be declining rapidly based on estimates of habitat loss, degradation and fragmentation.
