Machaeropterus regulus is a small South American species of bird in the Pipridae family. They range in size from 7 to 15 cm (3 to 6 in) and in weight from 8 to 30 g (0.28 to 1.06 oz). The nominate subspecies is found in Atlantic Forest in eastern Brazil. The male has green upperparts with a bright red cap. Most of the underparts are heavily striped with purple and buff. The female has green upperparts and just a hint of the streaking of a male. Both sexes have yellowish spots on the tertials. Like many other manakins, the males cluster in a leks to attract females. After mating, the females rear the chicks on without the help of the males.
