Statius Müller, 1776,
See S. castaneiventris for links of present species to a S clade of “capped” Sporophila, within which relationships are hard to determine, as genetic differentiation very low and species apparently part of a recent and rapid radiation, but present species lies outwith this core radiation#R#R. Until recently considered conspecific with S. pileata, and study that overturned this view also showed that races saturata and crypta, recognized in HBW, are invalid#R. Monotypic.
S Suriname and French Guiana; E Brazil at mouth of R Amazon and from Maranhão E to Rio Grande do Norte, S to S Mato Grosso, S Goiás, NE São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro (recorded also in NW Mato Grosso and SE Amazonas)#R.
