M. H. C. Lichtenstein, 1823,
Trancoso, Bahia, Brazil.
Considered to be part of a clade that includes H. atricapillus and H. motacilloides, both previously merged with present species, and H. parkeri. Sister to H. atricapillus, the two together being sister to the pair H. motacilloides and H. parkeri#R#R#R. Present species only recently separated taxonomically; name “H. pileatus” was long applied to H. sellowi, but studies in connection with taxonomic recognition of present species showed that the name was in fact applicable to the newly discovered form; a replacement scientific name for the long-known form was thus required and supplied (“H. sellowi”). Monotypic.
Coastal E Brazil in Bahia (S of Salvador to Trancoso area).
