Range Description

Basileuterus ignotus is confined to a very small range, estimated at c.180 km2, on Alturas de Nique and Cerro Tacarcuna in Darin, Panama, and north-west Choc, Colombia (Wetmore 1984, Ridgely and Gwynne 1989, Wege 1996). Within this range it is thought to occupy an area of less than 100 km2 of suitable habitat (Wege 1996). It is generally uncommon (Ridgely and Gwynne 1989), but was found to be fairly common above 1,400 m on Alturas de Nique (above Cana) in 1985 (Robbins et al. 1985).
