Automolus leucophthalmus lammi
J. T. Zimmer, 1947,
Recife, Pernambuco, Brazil.
Until recently considered conspecific with A. leucophthalmus; differences from geographically and morphologically closer nominate leucophthalmus are slight (those involving dorsal colour, tail and throat#R not upheld in USNM specimen evidence), involving a sharper division between creamy-white throat and toffee-brown breast (1); and browner, slightly less rufous ﬂanks, lower belly and vent (1); but song distinctive, a deliberate series of typically 4–6 harsh modulated notes vs a fast series of 5–7 nasal doubled overslurred notes, hence much longer notes (3) with dramatically different note shape reflected as 10 vs 0–1 oscillations per note (at least 3). Monotypic.
E Brazil (Paraíba, Pernambuco, Alagoas and Sergipe).
