Range Description

Eleothreptus anomalus is very scarce throughout east Paraguay (regular at one site in Misiones and 5-6 other confirmed records) (Hayes 1995, Lowen et al. 1996, Capper et al. 2001) and north Argentina (at least 12 records since 1980), with apparently fragmented populations in central and south-east Brazil (Bornschein et al. 1996, Kirwan et al. 1999). It has also been recorded from Uruguay. Almost all records are of lone individuals, although six individuals were recorded at a wetland site in Rio Grande do Sul recently (Accordi 2002). However, in most cases, there is only a single record from each locality. Some records refer to southern breeders migrating north in the austral winter (Cleere and Nurney 1998).
