Middle American, Vermiculated, Choco, Roraima or Rio Napo Screech-Owl

Megascops [guatemalae, vermiculatus, centralis, roraimae or napensis] (= Megascops guatemalae) (Sharpe, 1875)

The Middle American Screech Owl (Megascops guatemalae), also known as the Guatemalan Screech Owl, is a species of owl in the Strigidae family. It is found in forests and dense second growth from Mexico to Costa Rica. Some authorities include Chocó Screech Owl and Foothill Screech Owl in M. guatemalae, but under the English name Vermiculated Screech Owl. When split, the name Vermiculated Screech Owl (M. vermiculatus) is sometimes used for the population in Costa Rica and Panama, but based on voices all in Panama appear to be M. centralis (with its short-trilled song), while populations in Costa Rica appear to be divided between M. centralis and M. guatemalae (with its long-trilled song).
