Range Description

Myiotheretes pernix occurs on the north slope of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Magdalena, Colombia, where it is localised and uncommon (Hilty and Brown 1986). The only area from which there are recent records is the San Lorenzo ridge, e.g. (Hilty and Brown 1986, G. M.Kirwan in litt. 1998,P.G.W.Salaman in litt. 1999, Renjifo et al. 2002), although there have been few recent surveys near the two historical eastern localities, or in other parts of its projected range.
