The genus Psophia includes terrestrial birds endemic to the Amazon. The number of species in this genus is still controversial, with alternative taxonomic treatments currently available. We present new and historical records of P. interjecta for the state of Tocantins, which extend this species’ range to the Tocantins–Araguaia interfluve, in southeasternmost Amazonia. Psophia interjecta is considered Vulnerable in Brazil, but we discuss that the species is likely more Critically Endangered in Tocantins due to drastic deforestation and hunting.
