Brazilian Tanager (Ramphocelus bresilius) - HBW 16, p. 187
French: Tangara du Brésil
Spanish: Tangara Brasileña
Taxonomy: Tanagra bresilia Linnaeus, 1766, “in India Occidentali et Orientali”; error = Pernambuco, eastern Brazil.
May form a superspecies with R. dimidiatus, R. melanogaster and R. carbo. Hybrids between this species and R. carbo reported from E Brazil (Rio Doce area of Minas Gerais), but molecular analyses show that differentiation between these two taxa is typical of expected values for well-differentiated species (2·4–4·0%). Two subspecies recognized.
Subspecies and Distribution:
- bresilius (Linnaeus, 1766) - coastal E Brazil from Paraíba S to Bahia (Ilhéus).
- dorsalis P. L. Sclater, 1855 - SE Brazil from E Minas Gerais, S Bahia and Espírito Santo S to NE Santa Catarina; extreme NW Argentina (N Misiones).
