We report here a documented record of the White-bellied Hummingbird Amazilia chionogaster Tschudi, 1845 for Corumbiara, Rondônia state, western Brazil. This is the fourth locality where this species had been recorded with physical evidence in Brazil. The site of our record is more than 600 km east of the Andean sites where A. chionogaster has been previously recorded. Our record of A. chionogaster is the first from Rondônia state. This study suggests that this species has an extensive range in South America.
