Range Description

Odontophorus gujanensis is restricted to the Neotropics. It has a disjunct range, and eight recognised subspecies. Subspecies castigatus is likely to have been extirpated from Panama, and is now found only in a restricted area of Costa Rica. Subspecies marmoratus ranges from east Panama, where it can be locally common away from human settlements, to north Colombia and north-west Venezuela. The nominate subspecies gujanensis is uncommon in south-east Venezuela; from there its range spreads east through Guyana to Suriname and French Guiana (it is frequent in both of these countries), and south through parts of Brazil to extreme northern Paraguay (del Hoyo et al. 1994, Restall et al. 2006). Subspecies medius occurs in south Venezuela and north-west Brazil. Subspecies buckleyi occurs at the base of Colombia's east Andes, in east Ecuador and in north Peru. Subspecies rufogularis is endemic to north-east Peru. Subspecies pachyrhynchus is known from east Peru, where it is common, and may also occur in west Bolivia. Subspecies simonsi is endemic to east Bolivia (del Hoyo et al. 1994).
