Range Description

Picumnus limae is known from the Serra de Ibiapaba, Serra do Baturit and Serra do Arataruai in north-central Cear, north-east Brazil. New information suggests it is far more numerous and widespread than was previously thought, and its range covers the northern half of the State of Ceara and a small part of eastern Rio Grande do Norte. It persists in degraded and urban habitats, and its population is now estimated at 1,000,000 individuals (W. Silva and C. Albano in litt. 2007).
