Range Description

Chlorochrysa nitidissima occurs in the west and north-central Andes of Colombia (in Antioquia, Caldas, Risaralda, Quindo, Valle del Cauca and Cauca). There are records from only two sites in the central Andes since 1951: Ucumar Regional Park, Risaralda, in the early 1990s (Wege and Long 1995), and the northernmost locality near Anor, Antioquia, in 1999 (A.Cuervo in litt. 1999). The great majority of modern records in the west Andes are from accessible sites in Valle del Cauca. It was formerly common, but is now infrequently recorded, although it remains fairly common locally, even in remnant forest fragments.
