Range Description

Thripophaga macroura occurs in the Atlantic forest region of south-east Brazil, from Bahia south of Salvador through east Minas Gerais to Esprito Santo and north Rio de Janeiro. Formerly known from just seven locations it has recently been found in a number of new localities: forests between Ituber and Camamu; Usina Paineiras; Serra Bonita Private Reserve (RPPN) (B. Whitney and J. F. Pacheco in litt. 2003); Una Biological Reserve (R. Laps in litt. 2003) and two sites in the Jequitinhonha valley (Ribon et al. 2004). It may well occur in all the remaining lowland forest in southern Bahia. It is locally not uncommon, but occurs very patchily and is apparently absent from large areas of mature forest where vine-tangles are scarce.
