The Purple-winged Ground Dove (Claravis godefrida) is a critically endangered species of dove, native to Atlantic forest, mainly near bamboo, in south-eastern Brazil, far eastern Paraguay, and northern-eastern Argentina (Misiones only). It is threatened by habitat loss and possibly the wild bird trade. There are few recent sightings and the total population is estimated to number less than 250 individuals.
