Statius Müller, 1776,
Guyane = French Guiana.
Affinities within genus uncertain; some suggestions that closest relative may be S. cerulea, based mainly on similarity of songs, but a molecular phylogeny recovered this species as sister to S. castanea. Has hybridized with S. castanea and at least once with Mniotilta varia, also possibly with S. pensylvanica and possibly with S. kirtlandii. Monotypic.
S Canada (C Saskatchewan, locally from Alberta, E to S Newfoundland and Nova Scotia) S in NE USA to C Wisconsin and New England, and in Appalachians to extreme N Georgia. Migrates to Central America and NW South America, S in Andes to C Peru and, less commonly, C Bolivia.
