The Bertoni's antbird (Drymophila rubricollis) is a species of bird in the family Thamnophilidae. It is found in the Atlantic Forest of south-eastern Brazil, eastern Paraguay and far north-eastern Argentina (Misiones). It was formerly considered conspecific with the very similar ferruginous antbird.

The bird's common name commemorates the ornithologist Arnoldo de Winkelried Bertoni (1857–1929).[2]
