Range DescriptionDysithamnus plumbeus occurs in south-east Brazil, from Bahia (E. O. Willis and Y. Oniki in litt. 1999) (with recent records from Serra do Teimoso Private Reserve at Jussari [B. M. Whitney, J. F. Pacheco, R. R. Laps and L. F. Silveira in litt. 2003] and Serra Bonita Private Reserve [B. M. Whitney and J. F. Pacheco in litt. 2003]) through east Minas Gerais and central Esprito Santo, to southern Esprito Santo (recorded from Cafundo Private Reserve at Cachoeiro de Itapemirim [Bauer 1999]) and extreme north-west Rio de Janeiro (in forest fragments around Itaperuna and Raposo). It is generally considered uncommon and local, and appears to be common at very few sites (notably at Sooretama Biological Reserve, although possibly in a very limited area). However, its range in southern Bahia may be more extensive than recorded as some large forest remnants remain to be surveyed.
