Chlorospingus (Hemispingus) auricularis
Maraynioc, Junín, Peru.
Closely related to K. atropileus and K. calophrys, and has been treated as conspecific with one or both of those; replaces former on S side of R Marañón, and currently treated as separate species on grounds of some plumage differences and molecular analyses; however, vocal differences appear to be minor#R, and work needed to confirm or deny species rank in this case. Monotypic.
Peru on E slope of Andes (from Marañón Valley S to Cuzco).
