Unbarred, dark rufous tinamou with a gray face, throat, and belly. With a good view note the pale eyes and orange base to the bill. Found at medium to high elevations in humid forest on the slopes of a few tepuis in southeastern Venezuela, northern Brazil, and southwestern Guyana. Rarely encountered unless voice is known; song is a long and high-pitched whistle, fading at end. Similar to Little Tinamou (which has a very different voice), but Tepui Tinamou is darker and has pale eyes.
