    The Great-billed Hermit is distributed in western Amazonia with disjunct populations in the Guianas with Amapa and in eastern Brazil. See the distribution map at Birdlife International. It is found in lowland forest both terra firme and inundated as well as the foothills of the eastern Andes.

    Some authorities include it under the species Long-tailed Hermit P. superciliosus. ....

     The great-billed hermit (Phaethornis malaris) is a species of hummingbird in the family Trochilidae. It is found in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Peru, Suriname, and Venezuela. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forest.

    The taxonomy of this species and the long-tailed hermit is confusing. Most taxa previously consider subspecies of the latter (insolitus, moorei, ochraceiventris, bolivianus and margarettae) are now considered subspecies of the former. A satisfactory taxonomic treatment of the entire P. longirostris/P. superciliosus/P. malaris group is still lacking according to some Neotropical ornithologists. [1] Additionally, the taxon margarettae of the Atlantic Forest of eastern Brazil is sometimes considered a separate species: Margaretta's Hermit (P. margarettae). ...
