Pipromorpha oleaginea macconnelli
C. Chubb, 1919,
Kamakabra River, Guyana.
See M. oleagineus. Until recently considered conspecific with M. roraimae (which see). Race peruanus, reported in HBW to be distinctly different, is marginally less dark on breast and brighter on belly; song, however, structurally different#R, meriting further study, which must also determine whether adjacent population of presumed nominate sings similarly; genetic data#R support treatment of peruanus as a separate species. Populations of nominate N and S of Amazon possess moderately different songs. Proposed race amazonus (C Brazil and E Bolivia) treated as synonymous with nominate. Two subspecies recognized.
