Was often regarded as conspecific with D. fuliginosa, but genetic data#R indicate that it is better treated as a separate species; race atrirostris of latter considered by some authors to be better placed with present species on basis of vocalizations and presence of crown streaking, and race taunayi likewise may be closer to D. turdina than to D. fuliginosa#R. Birds from S of range named as race enalincia, but based on characters which are obscured by marked individual variation in both size and plumage coloration throughout species’ range. Monotypic.
