Abstract
We describe a nest of the Silvery-fronted Tapaculo (Scytalopus argentifrons), a member of a large genus in which only one-fourth of the species have described nests. The nest, found in a Costa Rican cloud forest and containing two chicks, was a substantial globular structure constructed mostly of moss, located in a subterranean cavity at the end of a short, narrow tunnel.
