Such's Antthrush Chamaeza meruloides

  • Order: Passeriformes
  • Family: Formicariidae
  • Monotypic
  • Authors: Harold F. Greeney and Guy M. Kirwan


Conservation Status

Although Such’s Antthrush is restricted to the Atlantic Forest endemic region of southeastern Brazil, it currently is not considered threatened (IUCN Red List status is Least Concern: Birdlife International 2013).

Effects of human activity on populations

None documented in detail, but Aleixo (1999) found Such’s Antthrush in partially logged forest habitat, suggesting it may be tolerant of some level of human disturbance.
