Odontophorus hyperythrus


To elaborate the model of this species we removed five records in BioMap from Cundinamarca; three of them Bogota skins and two that represent corrupted data. Additionally, we did not use records for which their locality coordinates lay down at elevations out of the range of altitudes recorded in the specimens' labels (i.e. 800-3,100 m).

The habitat suitability model generated in Maxent predicted extensive areas in the three Andean cordilleras; except the northern end of the Eastern Andes and the eastern slope of the same cordillera in Boyaca. Most areas predicted in the Eastern Andes are not known to be occupied by this wood-quail and were trimmed off from the final version of our potential distribution map. Additionally, we trimmed areas below 800 m and above 3,100 m of elevation.

Assuming that the distribution of the species may have filled the areas predicted as suitable (i.e. marginally suitable, suitable and highly suitable), its potential distribution today in remnants of forest is about 43,205 km2, which corresponds to a loss of ≈ 61 % of its potential original distribution due to deforestation. However, if we consider a more restricted distribution to this species, excluding potential areas north of Andalucia (Huila) from were there are no known records for this species, its potential distribution today in remnants of forest is about 35,257 km2, which corresponds to a loss of ≈ 64 % of its potential original distribution due to deforestation.
