The striolated puffbird (Nystalus striolatus) is a species of puffbird in the Bucconidae family. It is found in Brazil in the southwestern Amazon Basin and the bordering countries of Peru and Bolivia. A disjunct population lives to the west in a narrow region in central Ecuador and northwestern Peru. The other major population is another disjunct group about 1,500 kilometres (930 mi) northeasterly and downstream on the south regions of the Amazon River outlet in the Brazilian state of Pará. The population is centered on the adjacent 1,500 km (930 mi) Tocantins River drainage which empties adjacent to the Amazon.
