Range Description

Picumnus steindachneri occurs in the central Huallaga valley and very locally in the Utcubamba valley in the Andes of north-west San Martn and south-east Amazonas, Peru (Schulenberg et al. 2007). It is known from very few locations (Taczanowski 1882, Hornbuckle 1999b, R. Webster and R. A. Rowlett in litt. 1998, J. Fjelds in litt. 1999, 2007), but there are no recent records from the type-locality near Mendoza, and it is likely to have been extirpated from the area. It has been described as fairly common or common in the Abra Patricia area (the best-known location) (Hornbuckle 1999b).
