Range Description

Piculus aurulentus is restricted to south-east Brazil (Esprito Santo and Minas Gerais south to Rio Grande do Sul), east Paraguay and north-east Argentina (Misiones and north-east Corrientes). It occurs at 750-2,000 m in Brazil, but at lower elevations in Paraguay and Argentina (Brooks et al. 1993, Winkler et al. 1995, Parker et al. 1996). It seems to be rare in Paraguay, and more common in the mountains of south-east Brazil (Chubb 1910, Brooks et al. 1993, Sick 1993).
