Oxyruncus cristatus Swainson, 1821   Figure 6

We recorded this species 3 times: once in a transition area from semideciduous seasonal forest to cerrado

stricto sensu in Area A, and 2 in a seasonal forest dominated by Attalea speciosa   in Area D. The individuals were readily identified by their olive green color, red iris and yellowish underparts with black spots ( Brooke 2018). The photo we present in this article is the first photographic record for the species in Mato Grosso, as we ascertained after an exhaustive search in the literature, ornithological collections and virtual databanks.
