Summary

The Minas Gerais Tyrannulet Phylloscartes roquettei is currently classified as a Critically Endangered species, and is one of the most poorly known Neotropical birds. Here we report seven new localities for the species in the São Francisco river basin, raising to 17 the number of localities where this species is known to occur. The range of this species was estimated at 33,500 km2, covering a wider habitat spectrum than previously thought, including, in addition to dry forests, riparian and semi-deciduous forests. We believe this species is overlooked because its voice is generally unknown and available plates in field guides are inaccurate.

Resumo

O cara-dourada Phylloscartes roquettei é atualmente classificado como Criticamente Ameaçado, sendo uma das espécies de aves Neotropicais menos conhecidas. Neste trabalho são apresentadas sete novas localidades de ocorrência da espécie para a bacia do Rio São Francisco, elevando para 17 o número de localidades onde ela é conhecida. A área de ocorrência desta espécie foi estimada em 33,500 km2, ocupando uma gama de hábitats mais ampla do que o suposto anteriormente, incluindo, além das florestas secas, as florestas ciliares e semidecíduas. Acredita-se que esta espécie esteja passando despercebida devido ao desconhecimento de sua voz e à imprecisão das pranchas nos guias de campo disponíveis.
