The genus Psophia includes terrestrial birds endemic to the Amazon. The number of
species in this genus is still controversial, with alternative taxonomic treatments
currently available. We present new and historical records of P. interjecta for the
state of Tocantins, which extend this species’ range to the Tocantins–Araguaia interfluve,
in southeasternmost Amazonia. Psophia interjecta is considered Vulnerable in Brazil,
but we discuss that the species is likely more Critically Endangered in Tocantins
due to drastic deforestation and hunting.
