Birds from localities S of R Amazon, with paler upperparts and more tawny underparts, sometimes separated as race australis, but these differences appear attributable to individual variation; birds of S bank, however, have significantly longer bills than those of N bank, suggesting that recognition of two races might be warranted; further study needed. Monotypic.
