Tepui Tinamou is one of the least known species of tinamou. This species is difficult to see, and much of the small known range of this species is inaccessible; therefore this would be a difficult bird to study. Almost all aspects of its life history are unknown, including the diet and reproductive biology, as well as topics such as age at first breeding, life span and survivorship, dispersal, population regulation, molts, territoriality and population density, and sexual behavior. Further research also is warranted to investigate the geographical range of Tepui Tinamou.
