Until recently considered conspecific with F. dumetoria, but molecular evidence suggests a closer relationship to F. platenae#R; differs from F. dumetoria in its slightly stronger vs duller black crown, ear-coverts and mantle (1), with striking white supercilium (but this matched in some dumetoria; ns); slightly paler upper throat (1); slightly darker, richer rufous breast (1); and (based in part on published description#R, in part on single recording) song with three notes, the first longest, at roughly similar pitch, thus a rhythmic “seee-tsee-wee”, vs song with 3–4 rising and falling notes, often ending on higher-pitched stressed note, thus some notes not overlapping in frequency range (3); plus call a single “seee” vs double “ssit-ssit” or “ssit-truk”#R (2). Monotypic.
