Whitney et al., 2013,
left bank of Rio Aripuanã, about 80 km south-east of Manicoré at “comunidade Itapinima”, Amazonas, Brazil.
Recently described alongside closest relative H. praedictus#R, differing from it in characters given under that species, and from other taxa in the “Bahia Antwren complex” (H. sellowi, H. pileatus, H. atricapillus, H. motacilloides and H. parkeri) in its paler, creamy-white throat (1), more extensively and purely white underparts (2), and loudsong most like that of H. atricapillus (of all taxa) but usually without 1–3 introductory notes (1) and with lower maximum frequency (no overlap; 3)#R. Despite reported relationships#R, the great similarities of this and H. praedictus to other taxa in group, both vocally and in plumage, suggest that further analysis, using nuclear genes, is appropriate to confirm current arrangement of species. Monotypic.
C Amazonian Brazil on right bank of R Madeira, in R Aripuanã–R Machado interfluvium and R Roosevelt (SE Amazonas, N Rondônia, NW Mato Grosso).
