G. R. Graves, 1987,
east slope of Carpish Mountains near the Central Highway, c. 2400 m, Huánuco, Peru.
Genetic data indicate that this taxon and G. rufula are sisters#R. No races recognized, but it is now clear that birds from Junín and Pasco, which show some plumage differences, represent a separate taxon, for which species status seems appropriate on basis of vocalizations: song of N birds (S to Huánuco) is a soft, monotonous fast series of 17–32 notes, whereas that of S birds is a single loud note, somewhat recalling S races of G. rufula (but S birds of present species are sympatric with G. r. obscura)#R. Monotypic.
Patchily in C Andes of Peru from C Amazonas and NW San Martín through Huánuco to Pasco and Junín, also NE Ayacucho.
