First report on bird species collected by two Brazilian museums at Distrito Federal, central Cerrado

Dárius Pukenis Tubelis


A list of unpublished records of bird species collected in Brazil’s Federal District was elaborated. It included specimens deposited in collections of the Museu de Zoologia da Universidade de São Paulo, in São Paulo, and of the Museu de Ornitologia, in Goiânia. Employees of these two museums collected a total of 94 species in Brasília and Planaltina, mainly during the 1960s. Eleven of these species were considered by previous publications as having no specimens collected in the Federal District. Two species (Knipolegus cyanirostris and Pachyramphus castaneus) had not been recorded at the Federal District by previous studies.
