The Dusky Antbird (Cercomacra tyrannina) is found across much of middle America, from southeast Mexico southwards, thence across much of northern South America south as far as northern Brazil.

The males are predominantly gray with white wing markings and a white interscapular patch, whilst females are largely warm cinnamon below, with darker brown upperparts and pale rufous wing spotting.

It feeds on insects and other arthropods taken from twigs and foliage in thickets or vine tangles.
