) Pallas, 1764,
Until recently considered conspecific with S. subalpina (which see). Race inornata also proposed for species rank in course of separation of S. subalpina and description of iberiae#R#R, but plumage differences relatively weak and call differences slight#R. Some authors propose that albistriata be treated as a full species, but evidence not conclusive. Has apparently hybridized with S. melanocephala#R. Four subspecies recognized.
