Range DescriptionCrypterellus noctivagus is rare to locally common in the caatinga and Atlantic forests of east Brazil. The nominate race occurs from south Bahia to Rio Grande do Sul, with an apparent stronghold in south So Paulo and east Paran (Aleixo and Galetti 1997). It is now restricted to only a few Atlantic forest sites (Cabot 1992), but appears to have always been scarce or rare in the south of its range (Hellmayr 1929, Belton 1984). The race zabele occurs from Minas Gerais (common in the north according to G. M. Kirwan in litt. 1999) to Piau and Pernambuco (Sick 1993).
