Amazonian Umbrellabird (Cephalopterus ornatus) - HBW 9, p. 102
French: Coracine ornée
Spanish: Paragüero Ornado
Other common names: Umbrellabird, Ornate Umbrellabird
Taxonomy: Cephalopterus ornatus E. Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, 1809, Barcelos, Rio Negro, Brazil.
May form a superspecies with C. glabricollis and C. penduliger; all three suggested by some as being possibly conspecific, but this considered unlikely. Monotypic.
Distribution: Almost entire Amazon Basin, from Andean foothills in Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia, E to S Venezuela (drainage of upper and middle R Orinoco), locally SW Guyana, and Brazil (E to R Negro and R Xingu drainages, S to S Mato Grosso, just extending to headwaters of R Paraguai).
