Range Description

Capito wallacei is known only from an isolated, unnamed ridge system to the east of the Cordillera Azul, Ucayali Department, Peru (O'Neill et al. 2000). The ridge is on the east bank of the upper Ro Cushabatay, 77 km west-north-west of Contamana in Loreto. The ridge is long (>50 km) and narrow (O'Neill et al. 2000) and, in spite of searches at suitable elevations in the adjacent Cordillera Azul, this species remains known only from Peak 1538 (D. Lane and T. S. Schulenberg in litt. 2000). It was found to be common, with up to eight individuals recorded daily (O'Neill et al. 2000). Thirteen specimens were collected from this mountain (O'Neill et al. 2000).
