We review the distribution of the Buff-fronted Owl Aegolius harrisii harrisii in Peru, supported by unpublished museum records and new specimens and observations. Compared to previous published records, the distribution and elevation range for the species in Peru are expanded significantly. Based on all records, we deduce that the overall distribution of A. harrisii in Peru is almost continuous, from the northwestern Andes to the eastern southern Andes, between 250 and 2960 m. The northern Peruvian Andes show a dense distribution of A. harrisii records compared to the distribution elsewhere in the Andes.
