Range Description

Columbina cyanopis is known from very few records over a wide range in the interior of Brazil. There is a small population in the Serra das Araras, Mato Grosso (da Silva and Oniki 1988, B. A. Carlos per A. Whittaker in litt. 1999), most recently recorded in 2007 (Valado 2012). However the only other recent records are from near Cuiab (also in Mato Grosso) in the 1980s, and one individual at Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul, in 1992 (Parker and Willis 1997). Historical records are also scarce, with five specimens collected in Mato Grosso in 1823-1825, two from Gois in 1940-1941, and one from So Paulo in 1904. It has been erroneously listed for Minas Gerais, but could conceivably occur in the extreme west of the state.
