P. L. Sclater, 1857,
Córdoba, Veracruz, southern Mexico.
Distinctive race temporalis sometimes treated as a race of A. striaticollis, which it resembles more closely; formerly considered a separate species, and perhaps better maintained as such until relationships resolved, although differs only in its more rufous mantle (1) and more flammulated, less scaly breast (1), while recordings do not suggest significant divergence in voice. Proposed race idoneus (W Panama), described as similar to nominate but paler (more olivaceous) above and yellowish-olive (not rufescent) below, appears to represent individual variation. Three subspecies recognized.
