Hylexetastes brigidai

The Brigida's woodcreeper (Hylexetastes perrotii brigidai), also known as the Mato Grosso woodcreeper, is a bird in the Dendrocolaptinae subfamily. Most taxonomists consider it to be a subspecies of the red-billed woodcreeper, although some consider it to be distinct.

It is endemic to humid forests in the eastern Amazon in Brazil.
