Cohn-Haft and Bravo, 2013,
about 30 km west of Humaitá, Amazonas, Brazil.
Recently described alongside closest relative H. stotzi#R, differing from it (in female) in its more uniform and rusty forehead and lores (1), broader, longer and less numerous pale streaks (2), loudsong with many more notes (in our sample 49–59 vs 23–35) (allow 3) and with moderate vs strong final deceleration (3); and from other taxa in the “Bahia Antwren complex” (H. sellowi, H. pileatus, H. atricapillus, H. motacilloides and H. parkeri) in its paler, creamy-white throat (1), more extensively and purely white underparts (2), and loudsong of all taxa most like H. dorsimaculatus but with larger number of notes (2) and faster initial pace (2)#R. Despite reported relationships#R, the great similarities of this and H. stotzi to other taxa in group, both vocally and in plumage, suggest that further analysis, using nuclear genes, is appropriate to confirm current arrangement of species. Monotypic.
S of Amazon from R Juruá to R Madeira, in S Amazonas, Brazil.
