Cayenne, French Guiana.
Closely related to I. cayanensis, and often treated as conspecific with it and I. pyrrhopterus. Mitochondrial DNA data reveal small divergence (0.6%) between present species and I. cayanensis; intermediate or hybrid individuals reported mostly from Suriname, but they do not hybridize in areas of range overlap in Guyana and Brazil, nor in Sipaliwini area of C Suriname; hybridization possibly occurs locally when conspecifics scarce, but further study needed. Monotypic.
S & E Venezuela (S from E Apure, Sucre, Monagas and Delta Amacuro), Trinidad, Guyana, N & C Suriname and N French Guiana S in Amazonia to E Colombia, E Ecuador, N Peru (Loreto S to Huánuco) and NW Brazil (Roraima and Amazonas).
