Hellmayr and Seilern, 1914,
Río Sangabán, Puno, Peru.
Previously placed in Percnostola, but recent extensive analyses#R#R#R situate it clearly in present genus. Original description of species almost certainly based on a subadult male, having female-like plumage; adult male described much later, as a separate species “Percnostola macrolopha”, and only relatively recently realized to be adult male of present species. Monotypic.
Extreme SW Amazonian Brazil (W & S Acre), SE Peru (Ucayali, E Junín, Cuzco, Madre de Dios, Puno) and NW Bolivia (Pando, N La Paz).
