P. L. Sclater and Salvin, 1860,
Choctum, Vera Paz, Guatemala.
Until recently considered conspecific with S. olivacea, S. stenorhyncha, S. turdina and S. aenea, but elevationally parapatric with S. stenorhyncha in C Panama (3); dull olive-brown below vs dull russet-brown on breast and greyish on belly (2); olive-brown vs russet-brown wings (2); song different, with two vs three notes and structure different (at least 3). Differs from S. turdina by its richer rufous wing-coverts (1); more olive-green belly (1); darker throat and breast (1); song of two vs three notes (3), first note upslurred at end vs even in pitch (2), second note shorter than third note of S. turdina (ns); and from other taxa in characters given under those species. Race rosenbergi differs from the others in that song has short end-note with distinct V-shape (score about 2). Four subspecies recognized.
