The striped manakin (Machaeropterus regulus) is a small South American species of bird in the Pipridae family. Its distribution is highly disjunct: The nominate subspecies is found in Atlantic Forest in eastern Brazil, while the striolatus group is found in forests in western Brazil, northeastern Peru, eastern Ecuador, Colombia, and western and southern Venezuela. Males of the former group have redder underparts than males of the latter, and the two are sometimes treated as separate species, the eastern striped manakin (M. regulus) and the western striped manakin (M. striolatus). In both, the males have a bright red crown, which the female lack.
