We describe a hybrid between the Amazonian Motmot (Momotus momota) and the Rufous-capped Motmot (Baryphthengus ruficapillus), collected in northern Goiás, Brazil. In some characters (e.g., shape of the tail and facial mask) the hybrid is similar to B. ruficapillus, in others (e.g., measures and amount of blue in the plumage) it is intermediate between the two parents, and in others (e.g., color of the underparts) it is unlike any of them. Photographs document the occurrence of hybrids in two additional localities in Goiás. Complexity of the genetic control of plumage color in birds may explain the hybrid's characters, and rarity of B. ruficapillus may be a factor leading to hybridization between these species. This is the first known case of intergeneric hybridization in the Coraciiformes.
