d’Orbigny and Lafresnaye, 1837,
Apparently closely allied to C. peruviana and C. castaneiceps, and part of the group centred on C. lineata. Range limits of races not well known, and especially whether or not they meet. Meets C. castaneiceps brunneinucha in SE Cuzco, which probably marks N limit of range. Plumage variation within Bolivian part of range confusing, with seemingly both dark and light specimens from Cochabamba, and three geographically defined types of back colour in females; of these, the olivaceous form, with two specimens from semi-humid forest of Santa Cruz, may represent another, as yet undescribed taxon. Further research and, probably, taxonomic revision required. Two subspecies currently recognized.
