Range Description

Pyrilia aurantiocephala is known only from a few localities encompassing the Lower Madeira and Upper Tapajs rivers in Amazonian Brazil. Given that the species is currently known only from two habitat types and from a relatively small area, the population is unlikely to be much larger than 10,000 individuals, and it is therefore considered to be Near Threatened. More records are likely to be forthcoming now that it has been formally recognised as a species, and these may clarify its exact status.
