Range Description

Eriocnemis godini is known from only six 19th century specimens, and may be extinct. Only the type-specimen has any locality information, having been taken at Guaillabamba, in ravines of the ro Guaillabamba south of Perucho, Pichincha, in north Ecuador. Two "Bogot" trade-skins are the only evidence of its occurrence in Colombia, but it has been suggested that these originated from Pasto in south Nario. The only subsequent record is an unconfirmed sighting near Quito, in the Chillo valley, in 1976.
