|Pará Foliage-gleaner (Automolus paraensis)|
|Carajás, Pará, Brazil
The Pará Foliage-gleaner is distributed in Amazonian Brazil from the right bank of the rio Madeira to Maranhão and south to Rondônia and northern Mato Grosso. It is found mainly in terra firme forest.
|Previously it was included as a sub-species of Olive-backed Foliage-gleaner A. infuscatus but has been elevated to full species status on the basis of Kevin Zimmer's paper (ZIMMER, K. J. 2002. Species limits in olive-backed foliage-gleaners (Automolus; Furnariidae). Wilson Bull. 114: 20-37.)
One of the principal reasons to consider Pará Foliage-gleaner as a separate species is the different vocalisation which is much slower than that of Olive-backed. It also has a duller more greyish crown and a more rufous tail.
