Peru; error = Mato Grosso#R.
Present species and P. cumanensis are very closely related to P. pipile, these and P. cujubi often being treated as conspecific (with P. pipile as species name); some authors also include the more distinct P. jacutinga. P. grayi here separated as a full species on basis of having crown white with black shaft streaks vs whitish with broad buff shaft streaks, and white extending farther down neck (2); throat with slender dangling whitish-grey wattle (3); wing patch (outer greater upperwing-coverts) solidly white vs barred black on white (2); upperparts lightly glossed dark green vs dark blue (ns). Intergrades with P. cumanensis in SE Peru (assume 1). P. cujubi nattereri has been considered conspecific, but is sympatric in S Mato Grosso. Monotypic.
Extreme SE Peru, Amazonian NC & E Bolivia (Beni, La Paz, Cochabamba and Santa Cruz), SW Brazil (Mato Grosso and Mato Grosso do Sul) and NE Paraguay (NE Alto Paraguay, Concepción and Amambay).
