Published in HBW Volume 13 on page 93.
Original HBW caption:
While population data are regrettably incomplete for most aegathlids, none is listed as globally threatened at present. Several are, however, classified as restrictedrange species. One example is the Sooty Tit, which occurs only in the Central Sichuan Mountains Endemic Bird Area in China, where it is uncommon for the most part. This species’ range is thought to cover as little as 20,000 km2, which certainly suggests that it could be susceptible to substantial further reduction in the local forest cover.
