P. L. Sclater and Salvin, 1875,
Maraynioc, Higos, and Sillapata, Peru.
Until recently considered conspecific with A. schistaceus, but differs in its much paler rufous crown (2); black vs dark grey ear-coverts (1); purer white throat (1); song phrases with on average more notes (effect size based on published information#R 1.44, score 1); much greater number of different notes in song phrases (effect size based on published information#R 2.37, score 2). Present species name is a replacement name introduced for Buarremon mystacalis Taczanowski, 1874, based on perceived homonymy with Arremon mysticalis [sic] P. L. Sclater, 1852, a name now in synonymy of Atlapetes albofrenatus#R; irrespective of other arguments, and whether or not replacement was justified, name mystacalis was replaced (long) before 1961 and is thus permanently invalid, as prescribed by ICZN Code#R#R. Monotypic.
Andes of C Peru (Huánuco S to Junín).
