Sangrador and Rio Manso, Mato Grosso, Brazil.
Previously placed in Philydor, but vocalizations, morphology and plumage characters indicate that it belongs in present genus#R; genetic data#R support this and also indicate that it is sister to S. rufosuperciliata. Recent study#R concludes that form baeri (from SE of range) is invalid, as the reported geographical variation and sexual dichromatism are based on misinterpretation of plumage variation. Proposed taxon S. mirandae, described from C Brazil (Goiás) and subsequently treated as race of S. rufosuperciliata, is a synonym of present species. Monotypic.
SC & interior SE Brazil (S Mato Grosso, S Tocantins, Goiás, SC Bahia#R and Minas Gerais S to N Paraná) and EC Paraguay (Concepción, Amambay).
