Berlepsch and Leverkühn, 1890,
Chanchamayo Valley, Junín, Peru.
Part of the “S. moesta group”; differs from S. moesta in tail structure and from S. macconnelli in juvenile plumage. In HBW, a disjunct population in N Mato Grosso was tentatively assigned to nominate race of present species, but recent work#R suggests that this C Brazilian population (now known to extend to S Pará and Maranhão) belongs to an undescribed taxon of the S. ruficapilla complex. Two subspecies recognized.
