Rio Cachoeira (a headwater of the River Ilhéos), eastern Bahia, Brazil.
Forms a species pair, and previously regarded as conspecific, with C. chrysops; it has also been suggested that the two form a superspecies with C. dickeyi. Proposed race C. chrysops interpositus (described from Alagoas, in NE Brazil) seems to be based on a female of present species in worn subadult plumage, but possibly a valid taxon. Monotypic.
NE & E Brazil from Maranhão E to Ceará and Paraíba, S to SE Pará (upper R Xingú, Gorotire), extreme E Mato Grosso (R das Mortes), Goiás, Minas Gerais and Bahia, and isolated population in Espírito Santo.
