Conservation status

According to IUCN, the newly discovered Araripe man-akin (Antilophia bokermanni) is Critically Endangered due to its extremely small Brazilian range and population, coupled with pressure on its habitat due to development. The golden-crowned manakin (Lepidothrix (Pipra) vilasboasi) is Vulnerable on the basis of its very small range in Brazil. The yellow-headed manakin (Chloropipo flavicapilla), Wied's tyrant-manakin (Neopelma aurifrons), and the black-capped manakin (Piprites pileatus) are considered Near Threatened, Endangered, and

Vulnerable, respectively. No manakin is currently listed by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES).
