Synalaxis [sic] flammulatus
“lofty table lands of the Andes” near Quito, 14,000 feet [c. 4270 m], Ecuador.
Phylogenetic data#R#R support suggestion that this species forms a monophyletic group with A. virgata and A. maculicauda; in past, sometimes considered conspecific with former. Proposed race pallida (N Peru), described as darker above with streaks whiter, paler below with reduced markings and more buffy flanks and undertail-coverts, probably best synonymized with taczanowskii, although sometimes thought distinguishable by clearer back streaking and more of a buff-ochraceous wash on throat and neck. Four subspecies recognized.
