Roraima and Merume Mountains, British Guiana.
Usually considered conspecific with M. bivittata, but differs in its much broader central orange crown-stripe (2); more uniformly brighter underparts (1); markedly longer wing (allow 2); and wholly different song, with many more notes (2), a trilled end reaching a much higher pace (3), achieving higher frequencies (ns) and clearly different note shapes (very short staccato-like notes; ns)#R. Genetic data indicate that present species is sister to M. bivittata, and a long period of separation#R. Monotypic.
Tepuis of S Venezuela, W Guyana and adjacent N Brazil.
