This species is common in, but restricted to the Lesser Antilles. It was recently separated from Striated Saltator S. striatipectus. As the name says, the Antillean species has a whiter throat.

Most people associate the Caribbean with palm-fringed sandy beaches, cricket and rum. Mention the West Indies to birders and they think todies and tremblers, among a remarkable array of c. 190 endemic species. Furthermore, no fewer than six families are confined to the region, and another (spindalises) virtually so. The region also receives many vagrants from both North and South America, and even transatlantic arrivals from Europe.
