Glaucidium brasilianum tucumanum
Rosario de Lerma, 4800 feet [c. 1600 m], Salta, Argentina.
Thought to be closest to G. brasilianum, G. peruanum and G. nana. Formerly treated as a race of G. brasilianum, but differs in vocalizations and DNA. Race pallens of latter, with adjacent distribution and occupying similar habitat, perhaps better included with present species. Monotypic.
SE Bolivia and SW Paraguay to NW Argentina (Salta and Tucumán to at least Córdoba), and perhaps also to W Brazil#R.
