Pachyramphus polychopterus (MPR)   : occurs from Guatemala to eastern Brazil and northern Argentina ( Mobley, 2016). There are records of breeding activity in lowland Atlantic Forest areas in SP between September and March, and records for the Carlos Botelho State Park/SP are restricted between September and April ( Antunes et al., 2013). It seems to depart from southeastern SP in April ( Aleixo & Galetti, 1997), which is corroborated by data from the Southeast and South regions, where records are centered in the period between September and April ( Belton, 1985; WikiAves, 2016; MZUSP; MPEG; MNRJ). In the Northeast, Central-West and Amazonian regions, records are distributed in all months of the year (WikiAves, 2016).

Pachyramphus validus (MPR)   : occurs from southern Peru and eastern Bolivia to northern Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil ( Mobley, 2016) on Marajó Island and eastern PA, and from RO to RS. Joseph (1996) classified it as migratory, but this is not a consensus in literature. It breeds in lowland Atlantic Forest areas in SP between September and March and it seems it departs from this region between April and August ( Aleixo & Galetti, 1997). Analyses of data from WikiAves, museums and SNA show a reduced number of records in the colder months (from May to July) in the states from the Southeast and South, and its absence from SC and RS ( Belton, 1985; WikiAves, 2016; SNA, 2016;MZUSP,MPEG, MNRJ), which shows that the species exhibit migratory movement. Although further studies are necessary to better understand its migratory pattern in all Brazilian territory.
