Range Description

Cercomacra ferdinandi is endemic to Brazil, occurring along both banks of the Araguaia river from Ilha do Bananal up to at least Araguatins, on both margins of the Tocantins river between Palmeirante and Babaulndia (Olmos et al. 2005, Pacheco and Olmos in prep.) and on the right bank as far as So Pedro da gua Branca municipality (Vasconcelos and de Souza Werneck 2008), on the right bank of the Manoel Alves Grande (Olmos et al. 2005) and along other smaller tributaries of the Araguaia and Tocantins (Olmos et al. 2005). Localities are in Tocantins, Mato Grosso, Par and Maranho states (Central Brazil) (Olmos et al. 2005). Until recently it was thought to be restricted to the Araguaia basin, but is now known to be an endemic of the Tocantins-Araguaia basin (Olmos 2008). At sites such as Crreo Mango it is one of the commonest species in its specialised habitat (Olmos et al. 2005). Its potential range appears to be larger than its currently known distribution since there are several suitable regions in the north-northeastern, southeastern, and especially western parts of its distribution (Marini et al. 2010).
