Odontophorus melanonotus


To elaborate the model of this species we removed two records in ProAves and DatAves datasets from Santander and Nariño. The record from Santander is clearly corrupted, while the record from Nariño was assigned wrong coordinates (El Pangan); since there were other records from ProAves correctly located we deleted this one from DatAves and did not reassign coordinates to it.

The habitat suitability model generated in Maxent predicted extensive areas in the three Andean cordilleras, west of the western slope of the Eastern Andes and the Pacific and the Uraba regions. Additionally, we trimmed areas below 700 m and above 2,100 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 1,785 km2, which corresponds to a loss of ≈ 38 % of its potential original distribution due to deforestation.


Regularized training gain is 2.179, training AUC is 0.975, unregularized training gain is 2.699.
