Mapocho Valley, Santiago, Chile.
Long synonymized#R with P. flaviventris, but recently noticed to be very different vocally, each form ignoring the other’s song in playback#R#R. Differs from P. flaviventris in its longer wings (published evidence#R indicates 48.9–50.4 mm vs 45.6–48.4) (at least 1); head movements when singing (no side-to-side movements) (1); and very different song, a series of well-spaced short scratchy notes, after a while accelerating and ending with a few doubled or tripled notes, “trik...trik...trik...trik..trik..tri-rik..tri-ri-rik”, vs a series of short low-pitched nasal notes, interchanged with high-pitched more melodic notes, in a rather irregular pattern, “kup...kup...peet!..kup-kup..peet...kup...”, thus note length much shorter (3) and song strophe considerably longer (2). Monotypic.
