Closely related to Z. linearis. Much individual variation#R, complicating assessments of subpecific validity: in past, race bourcieri was considered a separate species, but differences probably exaggerated; race subgrisea only recently revalidated#R; birds of E Ecuador previously separated as race (or even species) erythropareia, based on three old specimens, but now considered probably to be merely a dark morph of race bourcieri#R; birds of E Bolivia were assigned race loricata, but differences apparently involve individual variation#R. In past, present species was sometimes erroneously labelled as “Oreopeleia bourcieri”#R. Four subspecies currently recognized.
