P. L. Sclater, 1865,
Borda do Mato, eastern São Paulo, Brazil.
Until recently considered conspecific with S. bouvreuil, but detailed mapping has demonstrated a considerable area of sympatry#R while subsequent genetic analysis has determined that bouvreuil is probably sister to the “S capuchino” clade within which present species sits#R; intriguingly, however, no obvious vocal differences have been identified in available recordings, although more recent study indicates such differences while confirming a modest genetic distinctiveness in bouvreuil but not between present species and four other “capuchinos” investigated (see S. hypoxantha). Monotypic.
