Range DescriptionBasileuterus cinereicollis is local and uncommon to rare throughout most of its disjunct range in the Andes of extreme west Venezuela (western Mérida and Táchira) and north-east Colombia (south to Cundinamaca and west Meta); it is fairly common in the Sierra de Perijá on the Colombia-Venezuela border (Ridgely and Tudor 1989, Curson et al. 1994, C. J. Sharpe in litt. 2011), but its habitat on these slopes has now been severely degraded below 2,000 m (C. J. Sharpe in litt. 2000).
