P. L. Sclater, 1883,
Cosquín, Córdoba, Argentina.
Usually treated as conspecific with P. nigrorufa, but differs in its dark slaty-grey vs dark olive-grey upperparts (1); dark chestnut vs milky-rufous chin to breast and flanks (3); twice as much white on the tips of the outer rectrices (2); smaller bill (effect size –2.3, score 2). Race wagneri poorly differentiated from whitii, and perhaps better synonymized. Split recently given support by molecular analysis#R. Two subspecies currently recognized.
