Synnalaxis [sic] gularis
Colombia = “Bogotá”.
Formerly placed in Synallaxis, but differs genetically and in voice and foraging behaviour#R#R; recent phylogenetic study#R found it more closely related to Asthenes. Validity of race cinereiventris merits investigation, as similar-looking birds have been reported near localities of nominate in Cundinamarca (Colombia). Comparative analyses of population divergence in E Andes#R suggests presence of a further two phenotypically and genetically divergent lineages; more study needed. Proposed races rufipectus (C Andes of Colombia), described as more rufescent above and below, and pichinchae (Andes of Ecuador), said to differ from it in being paler below and darker above, considered indistinguishable from nominate. Four subspecies recognized.
