Krabbe et al., 1999,
Río Tiputini, Napo, Ecuador.
Forms a superspecies with M. spodionota and M. haematonota. Genetic, morphological and behavioural analyses indicate that the three are part of a monophyletic group that also includes M. gutturalis, M. fulviventris, M. leucophthalma, M. ornata and M. erythrura (the “stipple-throated antwren assemblage”), and which may not be closely related to other species placed in the genus. Monotypic.
SE Ecuador (S & W of R Napo) and extreme NC Peru (N Loreto S to C R Tigre).
