The Lord Howe Gerygone is classified as Extinct (EX), there is no reasonable doubt that the last individual has died.

One species, the Lord Howe Gerygone (Gerygone insularis), is extinct; and 25 taxa in 17 species are considered endangered, three of them critically so. The primary threats are land clearing, overgrazing, degredation and fragmentation of habitat, and changing fire regimes. The taxonomy of the Pardalotidae is complex and classifications have changed a great deal over the years. More
