Hypocnemis poecilonota [sic] nigrigula
E. Snethlage, 1914,
Boim, Rio Tapajós, Brazil.
Until recently treated as conspecific with W. poecilinotus, but split (treating present form as a race of W. vidua) proposed on vocal evidence#R. Although vocally very similar for the most part to W. vidua, differs, however, in its solid black vs whitish throat in male (3); much larger white (but usually concealed) interscapular patch in female (2); slightly darker grey crown and mantle in male (1); and distinctly longer “chirr” calls (from published data#R effect size 2.16, score 2). Moreover, this and W. vidua have been found within 1 km of each other in Pará#R, strongly suggesting parapatry. Monotypic.
SC Amazonian Brazil (extreme E Amazonas E to both banks of R Tapajós, and on E bank of R Teles Pires S to N Mato Grosso).
