locality uncertain, probably Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Type locality long regarded as Muriaé, in SE Minas Gerais, but now hypothesized as Macaé, in S Rio de Janeiro. Mentioned in HBW as being vocally close to Lamprospiza melanoleuca, but latter species now placed in Mitrospingidae; not sampled in recent molecular study, but plumage colour and pattern, eye colour and behaviour suggest present generic placement appropriate#R. Monotypic.
Very locally in Espírito Santo and possibly also adjacent Minas Gerais, in E Brazil.
