d’Orbigny and Lafresnaye, 1838,
Yuracares (probably in Cochabamba), Bolivia.
Previously included in Philydor, but genetic data#R place it clearly in present genus. Races intergrade extensively; populations from SE Colombia included in flavipectus but may be intergrades between that race and subflavescens; populations from the Guianas and NE Brazil are apparently intergrades between flavipectus and nominate, and those from SE Peru between subflavescens and nominate. Quantitative analysis, with more thorough sampling, likely to reveal that all variation is clinal and not worthy of subspecific recognition. Three subspecies tentatively recognized.
