Guianan Red Cotinga (Phoenicircus carnifex) - HBW 9, p. 106
French: Cotinga ouette
Spanish: Cotinga Rojo Guayanés
Other common names: Red Cotinga (when merged with P. nigricollis)
Taxonomy: [Lanius] Carnifex Linnaeus, 1758, Surinam.
Relationships of genus uncertain, but apparently closest to Rupicola; further study required. Closely related to and forming a superspecies with P. nigricollis; could perhaps be considered conspecific, except for fact that ranges overlap in region of lower R Tapajós and perhaps between there and R Xingu. Monotypic.
Distribution: SE Venezuela (E Bolívar), the Guianas and lower Amazonian Brazil (E from E Roraima and Manaus area and, S of Amazon, from lower R Tapajós E to NW Maranhão).
