Range DescriptionButeogallus lacernulatus occurs in the Atlantic forest of east Brazil (Paraba in 1949 (Pacheco and Whitney 1995), Alagoas, central (T.A. de Melo Jnior in litt. 1999) and south Bahia, east Minas Gerais, Esprito Santo, Rio de Janeiro, So Paulo and extreme east Paran and Santa Catarina). Although considered common around 1830, the paucity of recent records suggest that it is uncommon in isolated forest patches, with a small overall population.
