Koepcke's Screech-owl (Otus koepckeae) - HBW 5, p. 175
French: Petit-duc de Koepcke
Spanish: Autillo de Koepcke
Other common names: Maria Koepcke’s Screech-owl
Taxonomy: Otus choliba koepckeae Hekstra, 1982, Cordillera Blanca, Peru.
Originally described as race of O. choliba, but distinctly different in morphology; taxonomy requires further study to clarify true relationships. Species name sometimes incorrectly spelt koepckei. Monotypic.
Distribution: NW Peru (probably from around Amazonas, and Ancash S to Lima, possibly farther S, to Ayacucho or beyond); apparently also WC Bolivia (to La Paz). Distributional limits very imperfectly known.
