Range Description

Grallaria chthonia is known only from the type-locality, at Hacienda la Providencia on the ro Chiquito in south-west Tchira, west Venezuela, where four specimens were collected in 1955-1956. The type locality has since been deforested, although there is still forest in the vicinity; specific searches in September 1990 and December 1996 failed to find the species (M.Pearman in litt. 1995, Boesman 1998, P.Boesman in litt. 2000).
