All members of this genus have been placed, together with the members of Pauxi, and less often Nothocrax, in Crax. Genetic data suggest that present species is most closely related to M. tuberosum and Pauxi unicornis#R; reported as marginally sympatric with M. tuberosum at some localities in Peru. Range meets that of M. tomentosum in C Colombia, but without any evidence of interbreeding. Monotypic.
SC Colombia (S from S Meta and W Caquetá), E Ecuador and NE Peru (in Amazonas and Loreto).
