Myrmotherula surinamensis pacifica
Buenaventura, Valle del Cauca, Colombia.
Member of the “streaked antwren assemblage” (see M. brachyura). Until recently considered conspecific with M. surinamensis and M. multostriata, but vocal and plumage characters indicate three separate species#R. Appears most closely related to M. cherriei, from which differs mainly in female’s lack of streaks on darker forehead and underparts, male’s pale lower mandible, and voice (e.g. loudsong accelerating throughout). Monotypic.
Panama (E from E Bocas del Toro on Caribbean slope, from Panamá Province on Pacific slope), W & N Colombia (Pacific slope, N base of Andes E to Santander, and Magdalena Valley S to Cundinamarca) and W Ecuador (S to E Guayas, Chimborazo and NW Azuay).
