between Bahia and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
The most distinctive Pipile. In past, range met that of P. grayi in E Paraguay, with no evidence of interbreeding; however, recent loss of forest means that neither species apparently survives in the area of previous contact. Formerly considered conspecific with P. cujubi. Monotypic.
SE Brazil (formerly S Bahia S to Rio Grande do Sul), NE Argentina (Misiones) and SE Paraguay. Now very localized, having disappeared from most of former range; in Brazil, isolated population may remain in E Minas Gerais, but no records N of São Paulo since 1979#R, and has also apparently disappeared from Corrientes, in Argentina#R.
