Andoas, lower Río Pastaza, Ecuador–Peru; precise locality not determined, probably in Loreto, Peru.
In past, some authors thought present species might be a hybrid of P. albifrons and some other antbird species, but rediscovery in 2001 and subsequent observations#R showed it to be a valid species; this is corroborated by molecular phylogeny#R, which indicates that it is sister to P. albifrons. Determination of precise location of type locality problematic, partly because many villages in region have same name, and also because of changing political boundaries. Monotypic.
