Cinnamon-throated Hermit (Phaethornis nattereri) - HBW 5, p. 546
French: Ermite de Natterer
Spanish: Ermitaño de Natterer
Other common names: Maranhao Hermit
Taxonomy: Phaëthornis nattereri Berlepsch, 1887, Caiçara and Engenho da Gama, Mato Grosso.
One of the small hermits sometimes separated in genus Pygmornis. Similar to P. subochraceus and P. squalidus, but morphological characters indicate a closer relationship to P. ruber, P. stuarti, P. atrimentalis, P. striigularis and P. griseogularis. Recently described “P. maranhaoensis”, which was considered a full species or a race of P. squalidus, has proved to be the hitherto undescribed adult male plumage of present species. The two populations appear to be geographically isolated. Monotypic.
Distribution: E Bolivia and adjacent SW Brazil (Mato Grosso); also NE Brazil (Maranhão to Ceará).
