Range DescriptionEriocnemis godini is known from only six 19th century specimens, and may be extinct. Only the type-specimen has any locality information, having been taken at Guaillabamba, in ravines of the rÃo Guaillabamba south of Perucho, Pichincha, in north Ecuador. Two "BogotÃ¡" trade-skins are the only evidence of its occurrence in Colombia, but it has been suggested that these originated from Pasto in south NariÃ±o. The only subsequent record is an unconfirmed sighting near Quito, in the Chillo valley, in 1976.
