Range DescriptionDendroplex kienerii occurs along the Amazon River in inland South America, and is generally fairly common. It is distributed from extreme south-east Colombia and north-east Peru, through Brazil to the mouth of Rio Tapajós. Its range extends up the major Amazonian tributaries Solimões, Negro, Juruá, Purús and Madeira, but the species is generally rarer the further along these tributaries it is found, and reaches a southern limit in north-west Mato Grosso (del Hoyo et al. 2003). It is also thought likely to occur along the río Napo to Ecuador (Restall et al. 2006).
