Synallaxis stictothorax chinchipensis
Perico, Río Chinchipe, Peru.
Hitherto treated as conspecific with S. stictothorax (which see) and with unnamed species of Synallaxis from coastal S Peru, but differs from latter in characters given under S. stictothorax. Differs from S. stictothorax (with maculata) in its much longer bill (effect size 3.93, score 2); much longer tail (effect size 4.66, score 2); more spot-like streaks on breast and flanks, but much reduced on breast (1); rusty-buff vs white malar patch (2); rufous-brown v. buffy-tan lower flanks, and this colour much less prominent, producing much whiter underparts (2); and song with central passage consisting of a single vs 2–3 long notes (3) and longer pause before it (2)#R. Monotypic.
NW Peru (middle R Marañón and R Chinchipe drainages in Cajamarca).
