Range Description

Lepidopyga lilliae is known locally on the Caribbean coast of Colombia (Atlntico, Magdalena and La Guajira; Renjifo et al. 2002), most records originating in Isla de Salamanca National Park or Cinaga Grande de Santa Marta (P. G. W. Salaman in litt. 1999). It appears to be either rare or sporadic at the few known localities. The population size is low and it appears to move locally according to season (J. C. de las Casas in litt. 2008). It is likely to have declined since the mid-1970s owing to habitat loss. In 2013 a male was apparently photographed at Bocas del Atrato, Antioquia, c. 400 km SW of the known range (Surfbirds 2013).
