The headwaters of the Cururu, a right-bank tributary of the upper Tapajs, is located in south-west Par (Brazil) near the northern rim of the Serra do Cachimbo, a highland area reaching 500m. This is a Secondary Area through being the only known site of Golden-crowned Manakin Pipra vilasboasi, a species which has not been seen since its discovery in 1957 in terra firme rain forest. The extent of deforestation in this particular part of Amazonia is unknown and so the species is considered threatened (Vulnerable). The area probably falls near or inside the Mundurucnia Forest Reserve as the Cururu forms its southern boundary.
