Asthenes d’orbignyi huancavelicæ
Yauli, 11,000 feet [c. 3350 m], Huancavelica, Peru.
Usually treated as a race of A. dorbignyi but sometimes split, almost always with A. usheri as a race. Differs from A. usheri and A. arequipae in characters given under those species. Differs from A. dorbignyi in its slightly smaller size (best reflected in its shorter tail; score at least 1); slightly paler rump (1); more obvious supercilium (1); weak rufous bib (1); and shorter, lower-pitched and slower-paced trilled song (3) (but only one recording of A. huancavelicae available)#R. Undescribed taxon from Ancash fairly similar morphologically to present species but vocally appears closest to A. dorbignyi; may be a separate species#R. Monotypic.
Andes of W & SC Peru (locally in Ancash, also Huancavelica and Ayacucho).
