Tucumare, Rio Jamauchim, Brazil.
Hitherto treated as conspecific with C. aurita, but differs in its black (but with narrow fading chestnut lower edges) vs chestnut breast (3); bill apparently smaller, but sampling incomplete (ns); trilled song much slower, almost half the speed (3), and with longer notes (2) and no initial rising notes#R. Race pallida may be invalid, merely representing extreme of a cline. Some potentially confusing variation with race australis of C. aurita (which see). Two subspecies recognized.
