Distribution in the Americas

Hooded Gnateater is endemic to Brazil. It is resident in northeastern Brazil south of the Rio Amazonas, from eastern Pará to east western Ceará (Whitney 2003). It is reported at elevations up to around 300 m (Ridgely and Tudor 2009).

Distribution outside the Americas

Confined to the Americas.


Hooded Gnateater occupies densely vegetated and tangled portions of forest, often near the edge. While found in both primary forest and mature second growth, Hooded Gnateater is found in both the evergreen forests near the western portion of its range as well as the more seasonally dry forests of the eastern extremity (Ridgely and Tudor 1994, Whitney 2003, van Perlo 2009).
