|Recently described new species for the family||New World Barbets and Allies|
The find of this barbet in 1996 was a big surprise. For one,
this seems to be the only Capito barbet with a montane distribution. The
paper gives Ucayali as the departamento, but from the further locality data given it seems
that the site is in Loreto.
