P. L. Sclater, 1857,
Chamicuros, Loreto, Peru; error = Guyana.
Closely related to H. maculicauda, but has no white interscapular patch (2); white tail tip much narrower (2); and loudsongs show constant differences across ranges, with present species much shorter (1.8–2.4 s vs 3.6–5.3s) and with fewer notes (10–19 vs 19–34) (3), ending without the long raspy notes given by H. maculicauda (3)#R. Birds from Colombia, Venezuela and NW Brazil sometimes separated as race occidentalis, but appear to intergrade with nominate, and better merged, pending further analysis. Two subspecies recognized.
