P. L. Sclater, 1859,
In past, sometimes placed in a monospecific genus Chinchipe, but more recently found to be sister to S. zimmeri (which see). Hitherto considered conspecific with S. chinchipensis (which see) and with unnamed species of Synallaxis from coastal S Peru. The unnamed species –which is reportedly threatened by habitat loss and therefore urgently in need of description– differs from present species and S. chinchipensis in its almost pure white underparts and clear white lores and supercilum (3), strong dark patches at tail end (1), and voice, song consisting of a long rattling series of 50 or more notes (3) with no long pauses or long emphasized notes (3)#R. Two subspecies recognized.
