Cuiabá; error = Rio Madeira, Brazil.
In past, sometimes awarded separate genus Pseudoconopophaga, on basis mainly of larger size. Affinities not clear, but voice and biogeography suggest probably most closely related to group centred on C. lineata (which see). Proposed form rusbyi, based on a single specimen from Bolivia, is not distinguishable. Monotypic.
Lower Amazonian Brazil S of R Amazon, from E bank of R Madeira E to both banks of lower R Tapajós and S to N Rondônia#R and NW Mato Grosso#R, and from E bank of R Xingu E to W bank of lower R Tocantins; presence in intervening area not confirmed. Also, single specimen record from NW Bolivia (NW Beni), but locality open to question.
