Thamnophilus aethiops occidentalis
Cocal, 4000 ft [c. 1220 m], Cauca, Colombia.
Has sometimes been placed in Thamnophilus, and morphological characteristics have connected it with Thamnomanes, but bulk of vocal, morphological and ecological evidence supports its inclusion in current genus. Form punctitectus has been suggested to represent a separate species, but exisiting evidence to support this is both inadequate and, in part, contradictory. Racial identity of birds on Pacific slope of N Ecuador uncertain; tentatively placed in nominate. Two subspecies recognized.
