The rufous-tailed antthrush or Brazilian antthrush (Chamaeza ruficauda) is a species of bird in the Formicariidae family. It is endemic to the Atlantic Forest in southeastern Brazil and far northeastern Argentina (only Misiones Province). The cryptic antthrush and short-tailed antthrush are present in the same region, but these are mainly found at lower altitudes than the rufous-tailed antthrush.
