Sometimes treated as conspecific with P. leucoptera and/or P. atra. Populations of present species appear to involve more than one species#R; conversely, some races may represent merely clinal variation in plumage; taxonomic study required. Investigation of genetic structure within populations along valley of R Tocantins, in SE Amazon Basin, provides strong support for hypothesis that R Tocantins has been historical barrier promoting population divergence in this antbird#R. Ten subspecies currently recognized.
