The biology of Dwarf Tinamou Taoniscus nanus, with notes on its breeding in captivity

Dwarf Tinamou (Taoniscus nanus) Science Article 2


Dwarf Tinamou Taoniscus HGHUS was described by Temminck in 1815, based on Azara?s YnambuCarap. Its type-locality is Misiones in Paraguay, not the province of the same name in north-east Argentina, as is often and erroneously assumed. It may be extinct there, with no con?rmed recordssince 1901, although it is a cryptic, easily over-looked and, in consequence, poorly known species.
