Range DescriptionBangsia aureocincta occurs on the Pacific slope of the West Andes, Colombia. Four specimens were collected in the vicinity of Cerro TatamÃ¡ (Risaralda/ChocÃ³/Valle del Cauca border) between 1909 and 1946, but it was not found by surveys during the 1990s and may be locally extinct (Wege and Long 1995, Stiles 1998). Since 1946, it has been recorded at Alto de los GalÃ¡pagos (Valle del Cauca/ChocÃ³ border) (C. Acevedo per N. GÃ³mez in litt. 1999, Farthing 2001), the Caramanta massif at Alto de Pisones (Risaralda), where it is common to abundant (Stiles 1998), and recently in Las OrquÃdeas National Park (Antioquia) (Renjifo et al. 2002).
