d’Orbigny and Lafresnaye, 1838,
Moxos (= Beni), Bolivia.
Close to P. cristata; formerly treated as conspecific, but differs ecologically and vocally (important differences in vocalizations demonstrated by playback experiments), and possibly also in social system and nest architecture. Despite geographical isolation of the two populations of present species, there are no evident plumage differences that would warrant naming of subspecies. Monotypic.
NC & E Bolivia (Beni, extreme NW & SE Santa Cruz), SW Brazil (S Mato Grosso, Mato Grosso do Sul) and N Paraguay (Alto Paraguay).
