Range Description

Clytoctantes atrogularis was known from a single female specimen and two sightings of males at the type-locality on the west bank of the rio Ji-paran in Rondnia, Brazil, in 1986, and a possible sight record of a male along the rio Teles Pires, at Alta Floresta, north Mato Grosso, in 1989 (Zimmer et al. 1997a). Subsequently, in 2004, a pair of Clytoctantes bushbirds, almost certainly this species, was found near the rio Sucunduri, Amazonas (Whitney 2005), in May 2006, a pair was seen and tape-recorded in Reserva Biolgica do Jar, at Ji-Paran, Rondnia, close to the border with Mato Grosso (D. Buzzetti in litt. 2006), and in 2006 a female was found near the Rio Roosevelt Lodge, Amazonas (Whittaker 2009). It has apparently also been recorded at the Parque Estadual Igaraps do Juruena, Mato Grosso (Oliveira et al. 2009 per A. Lees in litt. 2011). Its centre of distribution is probably the upper rio Madeira/Tapajs interfluvium (Whitney 2005).
