Hitherto considered conspecific with C. cinereicapillus, but differs in its greyish-buff face, throat and breast and creamy-buff belly and rump (vs rich tan-buff and yellow-buff respectively) (2); loose butterfly-shaped spotting on breast vs close-packed long barring (3); red on nape (2); red of moustachial shot through almost entire moustache vs confined to distal end (ns); slightly shorter tail (mean 115, n=20, vs 128, n=21, effect size −2.3, score 2); narrow hybrid zone N of L Junín, C Peru#R (2). Reported vocal differences from C. cinereicapillus#R merit further investigation. Plumage characters#R and recent phylogenetic analysis#R indicate that present species is sister to C. pitius. Two subspecies recognized.
