Often placed together with M. flaveola, M. leucoblephara, M. leucophrys and M. rivularis in a separate genus, Phaeothlypis. Sometimes considered conspecific with M. rivularis, but songs differ and it seems likely that obvious buff rump and tail of present species (which is continuously signalled) would prevent interbreeding should the two ever come into contact. Racial allocation is sometimes in doubt#R. Six subspecies recognized.
