J. F. Naumann, 1823,
Recent molecular evidence that this form is less closely related than C. apolinari to other taxa in C. platensis#R prompted study here, resulting in finding that present species differs from C. platensis by its streaked black vs plain buffy-rufous rump (2); less distinctive streaking above (1); and relatively simple, uniform song, expressed as lower number of (truly) different phrases (2), and lower number of different notes (3), as well as a lack of longer notes (ns)#R. Monotypic.
