Range DescriptionPyrilia barrabandi is found in northern South America. It is naturally fairly rare throughout most of its range (A. Lees in litt. 2011). The nominate subspecies barrabandi ranges from south-west Colombia and south Venezuela into Brazil, as far as the Amazon to the south and Rio Negro to the east. Subspecies aurantiigena occurs in east Ecuador, and east Peru where it is present in Manu National Park. In north Bolivia it is described as frequent to numerous. Its range also reaches Brazil: it is limited by the Amazon in the north, and Rio Madeira in the east (del Hoyo et al. 1997).
