Abstract. A latitudinal distance was proposed on microscopic differences in green and violet woodhoopoe mantle iridosomediameters of mantle feathers. Outer iridophore diameters from Green Woodhoopoe P. p. purpureus barbules (0.22± 0.03 μm, n = 244) recorded at Morgan Bay were smaller than those from violet barbules (0.28 ± 0.04 μm, n = 248) recorded in Namibia. A latitudinal distance demonstrated a difference of 0.38° equivalent to 2.37 km with an outer diameter difference between violet and green woodhoopoes (0.06μm). This study examined woodhoopoes mantles interspecific distances which may show consequences for variation within roosts over 0.93 m.
