ABSTRACT Tarphonomus, a new genus of ovenbird (Aves: Passeriformes: Furnariidae) from South America, is described. Species included in the new genus, formerly placed in Upucerthia, are T. certhioides and T. harterti. 

Geocerthia , a new genus of terrestrial ovenbird (Aves: Passeriformes: Furnariidae)

Additional molecular data for species in these and related genera are gathered, and it is determined conclusively that U. serrana is sister to a clade consisting of sister genera Cinclodes and Upucerthia (Fig. 1).

First record of the Chaco Earthcreeper Tarphonomus certhioides (Furnariidae), in Brazil.

During an expedition to the Espinilho State Park, located at Barra do Quarai, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil (30° 12 ‘ 11 “S 29° 57 ‘ 40” W), from 18 to 24 July 2012, we recorded an individual Tarphonomus

Phylogeny and phylogenetic classification of the antbirds, ovenbirds, woodcreepers, and allies (Aves: Passeriformes: infraorder Furnariides)

A phylogenetic analysis of the Furnariides sampling 124 genera supports the Melanopareidae and Grallariidae as distinct from the Rhinocryptidae and Formicariidae, respectively and erects new family‐group names for clades having high branch support across methods.

Convergent evolution, habitat shifts and variable diversification rates in the ovenbird-woodcreeper family (Furnariidae)

The phylogenetic results reveal new examples of convergent evolution and show that ovenbirds have independently colonized open habitats at least six times and that observed large differences in species richness among clades can be explained by a substantial variation in net diversification rates.

An Update of Wallace’s Zoogeographic Regions of the World

A global map of zoogeographic regions is generated by combining data on the distributions and phylogenetic relationships of 21,037 species of amphibians, birds, and mammals, and it is shown that spatial turnover in the phylogenetic composition of vertebrate assemblages is higher in the Southern than in the Northern Hemisphere.

Six species were found for the first time in Bolivia: Black-hooded Parakeet, Rufous-legged Owl, Scimitar-billed Woodcreep- er (Drymornis bridgesii), Chaco Earthcreeper (Upucerthia certhioides), Little Thornbird (Pha- cellodomus sibilatrix), and Stripe-capped Sparrow (Aimophila strigiceps).
