Range Description

This species was only known from six specimens taken on cerros Ptari-tepuí and Sororopán-tepuí, in south-east Bolívar, Venezuela, but is now thought to have a much wider distribution in the east Pantepuí (Barrowclough et al. 1997). In 1994, it was frequently encountered (and four specimens taken) on Auyán-tepuí, in the more humid northern tepuí, c.50 km distant from the original sites (Barrowclough et al. 1997), and vocalisations of an unknown tinamou on Chimantá-tepuí have also been tentatively assigned to this species (Medina Cuervo 1992). It is believed that the small number of records is more related to low observer coverage and limited awareness of vocalisations than to genuine scarcity (C. Sharpe in litt. 2007).
