Turquoise Tanagers is resident from eastern Colombia east to Trinidad, the Guianas, and northwestern Brazil, and south to Bolivia and western and central Brazil. There also is a distinctive population (brasiliensis) in the Atlantic forest region of Brazil widely separated geographically from other populations of the species. The elevational distribution is from the lowlands up to 1000 m (Parker et al. 1996), although brasiliensis is restricted to lower elevations (Parker et al. 1996).
