Range Description

Thripophaga berlepschi is rare and locally distributed in the Andes of north Peru, from east Piura, through west Amazonas and San Martn, to south-east La Libertad. It has been recorded on Cerro Chinguela (Piura), La Peca Nueva, Leimebamba, Atun, Lluy, San Cristbal and near Florida-Pomacichas (Amazonas), La Montaita and Ro Abiseo National Park (San Martn) and Mashua (La Libertad) (Davies et al. 1997, Clements and Shany 2001, Begazo et al. 2001, G. Engblom in litt. 2001), and is probably also present in the northern Cordillera de Col (Dauphinet al. 2005) and possibly at Abra Patricia. There are large areas of unsurveyed forest at Leimebamba which may hold the species (H. Lloyd in litt. 2007).
