Lepanto Mountains, north Luzon, Philippines.
Previously placed in Bradypterus. Affinities uncertain; perhaps closest to L. accentor, which it resembles closely both in plumage and in song, but the two differ significantly in features of the tail and in foot size. Vocalizations of nominate race provoked little reaction when played to unicolor on Mindanao; investigation of relationships between these taxa required. Race malindangensis incorporated in unicolor by some authorities, and their songs are not known to differ#R. Three subspecies recognized.
