Range DescriptionAramides wolfi is known from west Colombia (Cauca and Chocó), west Ecuador (Esmeraldas, Imbabura, Pichincha, Los Ríos, Guayas and El Oro) and possibly north-west Peru (Tumbes). There are a few recent records from Ecuador (Cayapas-Mataje Mangrove Reserve, Humedales de Yalare, Río Ónzole, Quinindé, Pedro Vicente Maldonado, Jatun Sacha - Bilsa, Río Palenque and Manglares-Churute Ecological Reserve) (Clay et al. 1994, P. Coopmans in litt. 1998, J. F. Freile in litt. 2000, Ridgely and Greenfield 2001, Jahn et al. 2002, O. Jahn in litt. 2007), but elsewhere it has become extremely rare (Ridgely and Greenfield in press). Population estimates are lacking but eight pairs and six solitary birds were recorded at Bilsa Biological Station, Esmeraldas, in 2007 (L. Carrasco per R.Clay in litt. 2007). In Colombia, most records originate from the Serranía de Baudó, the most recent report (March 1996) coming from Ensenada de Utría National Park, Chocó, which holds a potentially large population (Porteous and Acevedo 1996). The single (potential) record for Peru was at Puerto Pizarro, Tumbes, in September 1977 (Graves 1982).
