Normally treated as conspecific with B. sonorivox; recent genetic data support their split#R. Recent phylogeographical study of thoracicus recovered significant genetic differentiation among populations (no haplotype common to all 13 populations sampled), and identified two distinct clades (one in C & W of range, other in E), with important Pleistocene refugia for these two lineages in SW mountains and Luoxiao Mts, respectively#R.
