The Varzea Piculet ("Picumnus varzeae") is a species of bird in the Picidae family, the woodpeckers, piculets, and wrynecks. It is endemic to Brazil's Amazon Basin.

Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical swamps, subtropical or tropical dry shrubland, and heavily degraded former forest.

Distribution

Amazon River corridor

The Varzea Piculet lives along the Amazon River in a wildlife corridor, the forest called "Várzea forest", a freshwater swamp forest. It ranges from the confluence of the Amazon River with the Rio Negro in a 275 km, variable width corridor downstream for about 850 km to the confluence of the Trombetas River from the north. The confluence of the Tapajós River joins here from the south.
