The Jocotoco Antpitta is a species of bird endemic to a very small range in South America, between Ecuador and Peru. The species is relatively new to science, having been discovered in 1997 and formally described in 1999.
The name Jocotoco is onomatopoetic, which means that a call that the bird makes sounds like it is saying "joco-toco". The Jocotoco Antpitta has a conservation status of Endangered. The most critical threat it faces is loss of habitat.
