This discussion was first published as part of the 2018 Red List update. At the time a decision regarding the status of several species was pended, but to enable potential reassessment of these species as part of the 2019 Red List update this post remains open and the date of posting has been updated.
Further analysis of the data outputs of Tracewski et al. (2016) has identified additional species that could potentially warrant uplisting based on data relevant to criterion B2. The first topic outlining these analyses can be found here.
The species which are still open for discussion are Macgregor’s Honeyeater (Macgregoria pulchra), Giant White-eye (Megazosterops palauensis) and Blue-eared Lory (Eos semilarvata).
The table outlining the additional seven species can be found here: Assessment of further species with potential uplisting under criterion B2
