M. H. C. Lichtenstein, 1823,
Traditionally thought probably to form a species-group with S. reinwardtii, S. gouldii and S. nattereri; S. spectabilis and S. piperivora have sometimes been included, but these two appear to differ from others in voice and display behaviour. Present species is closely related to, and sometimes treated as conspecific with, S. gouldii. Forms described as hellmayri (NC Brazil) and baturitensis (NE Brazil), usually treated as part of S. gouldii but sometimes included in present species, are apparently invalid, being result only of clinal variation. Monotypic.
Atlantic Forest of SE Brazil (S Bahia and E Minas Gerais S to Paraná and Santa Catarina, possibly to Rio Grande do Sul), also adjacent E Paraguay and NE Argentina (Misiones).
