Range Description

Synallaxis moesta is uncommon and local within its distribution in the east Andean foothills. The nominate subspecies moesta occurs from south Casanare south to north-west Meta, central Colombia. Subspecies obscura is found in Caquet and Putumayo, south Colombia (del Hoyo et al. 2003). Subspecies brunneicaudalis occurs insouth-east Nario, extreme south Colombia; the species is apparently scarce throughout the country (del Hoyo et al. 2003, Restall et al. 2006). From here brunneicaudalis ranges through Ecuador to the states of Amazonas, San Martn and possibly Loreto, in north-west Peru (del Hoyo et al. 2003).
