J. F. Gmelin, 1789,
Tierra del Fuego.
Validity of poorly known race bullocki recently confirmed#R. Individuals with ochraceous underparts, thus resembling fulva, apparently occur throughout near-shore Chilean islands, suggesting that this ventral pattern may appear independently in insular populations, perhaps as response to more humid conditions (Gloger’s Rule); population on Diego Ramírez I apparently differs morphologically from typical nominate; further study needed to clarify geographical limits of races. Three subspecies currently recognized.
