Picolaptes affinis neglectus
Coliblanco, Costa Rica.
See L. lacrymiger. Hitherto treated as conspecific with L. affinis, although possible split had been suggested on molecular grounds#R; differs in its fuller, buffier chin and throat (1); slightly broader, longer, brighter streaks below extending more obviously onto the belly (1); and entirely different song, a long overslurred nasal note, followed by a fast trill of some 20–30 notes, going slightly up and down in pitch, vs a long underslurred note followed by one or two shorter underslurred notes (score 4 for greater number of notes and 3 for much lower maximum frequency, 3·0–3·3 kHz vs 8·2–9·0 kHz)#R. Monotypic.
Mountains of Costa Rica and W Panama (Chiriquí Highlands).
