Clearly very closely related to B. culicivorus, occasionally hybridizing with latter in area of range overlap in S Brazil & NE Paraguay; one recent genetic study suggested that hypoleucus is either an incipient species in the process of differentiation, or it represents a restricted polymorphism of B. culicivorus#R (but see under that species). Monotypic.
