It is found in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests.
The ivory-billed aracari was originally classified in the genus Ramphastos. Alternate names include Azara Aracari and Yellow-billed Aracari.
Two subspecies are recognized:Yellow-billed aracari (P. a. flavirostris) - Fraser, 1841: Originally described as a separate species. Found in western Amazonia
P. a. azara - (Vieillot, 1819): Found in north-western Brazil
Some authorities consider the brown-mandibled aracari to also be a subspecies of the ivory-billed aracari.
