near Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
See X. atlanticus. Formerly placed in genus Lepidocolaptes, but molecular studies indicate more appropriate placement in present genus, as also suggested by both behavioural observations and morphological characters. Molecular data suggest it is apparently sister to a combined X. pardalotus–X. ocellatus (with beauperthuysii and chunchotambo) and X. elegans–X. spixii clade. Subspecies name pintoi is a replacement for brevirostris, as latter preoccupied when species moved from Lepidocolaptes to present genus#R. Three subspecies recognized.
