Abstract

Two Myrmeciza fortis nests were discovered in a lowland floodplain forest of Manu National Park, Peru. Both nests were embedded in leaf litter on the ground and were oven-shaped with a an entrance and an inner chamber concealing two eggs. Unlike the known nests of other Myrmeciza spp., the nests of Myrmeciza fortis closely resembled nests of other species in the Thamnophilidae. This discovery suggests that the genus Myrmeciza is polyphyletic
