Since 2005, the Brazilian Ornithological Records Committee (CBRO) has published updated checklists of Brazilian birds almost every year. Herein, we present a completely new and annotated version of our checklist. For the first time, we list all bird subspecies known from Brazil that are currently accepted by at least one key ornithological reference work. The inclusion of the subspecies should be seen as a synthesis, and not as a taxonomic endorsement. As such, we include in the new checklist… 
Three bird species new to Brazil from the Serra da Mocidade, a remote mountain in Roraima
Adding three bird species never before documented in Brazilian territory to Brazil's previously published total of 1919 species clearly expresses the country's position among the most bird-rich in the world, perhaps the richest, and suggests that further exploration of Brazil's Amazonian mountains will yield more discoveries.
An updated documented inventory and new records of bird species for the Brazilian state of Maranhão
Herein, we present a checklist of birds from the state of Maranhao, northern Brazil. This region is one of the most heterogeneous areas in the country, comprising upland and flooded rainforests, open
In the current scenario of environmental changes, anthropic pressures on biodiversity are in constant increase, stressing the importance of assessing the distribution and occurrence of organisms in
First record of helminths parasitizing Vanellus chilensis (Aves, Charadriiformes) in Acre state, southwestern Brazilian Amazon
The presence of intestinal parasites in individuals of V. chilensis from the Cazumbá-Iracema Extractive Reserve in Acre through a coproparasitological analysis is reported and the parasitized birds may act as reservoirs and were recorded in a peridomicile area, which may facilitate their contact with domestic birds.
An ornithological inventory in a reforested woodlot in western Paraná state, southern Brazil
This paper presents an ornithological inventory taken between March and December of 2017 in the Brazilian state of Paraná. Although the surroundings contain one relatively well-known location in
Birds from Cáceres, Mato Grosso: the highest species richness ever recorded in a Brazilian non-forest region
The municipality of Caceres. Mato Grosso state, Brazil, lies in a contact zone between three semi-arid to arid ecoregions: the Chiquitano Dry Forests, the Cerrado and the Pantanal. In spite of being
Multi-character taxonomic review, systematics, and biogeography of the Black-capped/Tawny-bellied Screech Owl ( Megascops atricapilla-M. watsonii ) c omplex (Aves: Strigidae)
The combined results allow for a redefinition of species limits in both M. watsonii and M. atricapilla, with the recognition of four additional species, two of which are described here as new.
First report of Davaneidae and Strongylida parasitizing Ramphocelus carbo (Aves: Passeriformes: Thraupidae) in the southwest of the Brazilian Amazon region.
The aim of this study was to diagnose the presence of endoparasites in fecal samples from specimens of Ramphocelus carbo that were caught in the Cazumba-Iracema Extractive Reserve (Cazumbá Resex), in the State of Acre.
Revision of the status of bird species occurring or reported in Colombia 2018
Chilean Flamingo Phoenicopterus chilensis, an Antshrike Thamnophilus sp., Yellow-crowned Elaenia Myiopagis flavivertex and Red-crested Finch Coryphospingus cucullatus are each newly added to the


Taxonomy, natural history, and conservation of Paroaria baeri (Aves: Thraupidae)
The taxonomy of this species is revised by examining plumage coloration and morphometric data of 36 specimens housed in Brazilian, European, and North American museums, finding that P. baeri and P. xinguensis are distinct in the absence and presence of sexual dichromatism, and are separated by a sharp geographic barrier.
Nomenclatural issues in ornithology: the incredible controversy on the identity of a long overlooked Brazilian bird.
It is argued that for now the nomen Scytalopus speluncae should be applied to the only species known to occur in the vicinities of the type locality, as established by the author of the species.
Systematic Revision of the Spotted Antpitta (Grallariidae: Hylopezus macularius), with Description of a Cryptic New Species from Brazilian Amazonia
A systematic revision of the polytypic Spotted Antpitta based on morphometric, plumage, vocal, and molecular characters revealed the existence of an undescribed taxon endemic to the Madeira—Xingu interfluvium, similar in morphology to paraensis, but vocally and genetically readily distinguished from the latter.
Inundicola Bravo, Isler, and Brumfield 2013 is a junior synonym of Akletos Dunajewski 1948 (Aves: Passeriformes: Thamnophilidae).
The generic name Inundicola Bravo, Isler, and Brumfield 2013 is a junior synonym of Akletos Dunajewski 1948, and the generic descriptions provided in Isler et al. 2013 are amended.
A taxonomic review of Picumnus exilis (Aves: Picidae) reveals an underestimation of Piculet species diversity in South America
AbstractThe Picumnus exilis complex is composed of 6–7 subspecies distributed from eastern Colombia, through Venezuela, the Guianas, to northern and northeastern Brazil. They are characterized by a
Taxonomy and geographic variation of the Synallaxis ruficapilla Vieillot, 1819 species-complex (Aves: Passeriformes: Furnariidae)
The analysis showed that only S. ruficapilla and S. infuscata can be considered valid species;, that S. whitneyi is a synonym of S. cinerea, and shows complex geographic variation in morphology and voice that has led other authors to consider a geographic variant as a third species in the complex.
Hybrid, Subspecies, or Species? The Validity and Taxonomic Status of Phaethornis Loncuemareus Aethopyca Zimmer, 1950 (Trochilidae)
Its morphological and vocal distinctiveness with respect to other Phaethornis spp.
A New Look at the "Species-Poor" Central Amazon: The Avifauna North of Manaus, Brazil
It is suggested that habitat heterogeneity, not primary productivity or rainfall as have been proposed elsewhere, is the major determinant of patterns in bird species richness within Amazonia.
Increased taxon and character sampling reveals novel intergeneric relationships in the Cracidae (Aves: Galliformes)
The present work attempts to refine the former phylogenetic hypothesis by increasing taxon sampling and combining molecular with osteological, integumentary and behavioural characters using Maximum Parsimony (MP) and Bayesian analyses, and suggests that increased taxon and character sampling from a diversity of sources may be at least as important as increased sampling of only one type.
A taxonomic review of the Golden-green Woodpecker, Piculus chrysochloros (Aves: Picidae) reveals the existence of six valid taxa.
Piculus chrysochloros (Vieillot 1818) is a species of woodpecker that ranges from Argentina to Panama, occurring in lowland forests as well as Cerrado, Caatinga and Chaco vegetation. Currently, nine
