Sclerurus scansor cearensis
E. Snethlage, 1924,
São Paulo, Serra do Ibiapaba, Ceará.
Until recently considered conspecific with S. scansor, but differs in its clear white vs dusky-scaled white throat (2); slightly brighter plumage on back and underparts (1); slightly smaller size (allow 1); and song, typically a fast rattle followed by a series of piping overslurred whistles which rise in pitch and increase in amplitude towards end vs a fast rattle decreasing in pitch towards end and slightly decelerating (thus, the rising piping whistles representing an exceptional difference: 4)#R. Genetic evidence agrees with this split#R#R. Monotypic.
NE Brazil (Ceará S to N Bahia).
