Río Negro, Peru.
See T. varia. Highland race phelpsi differs in numerous ways from nominate, and was mentioned in HBW as possibly meriting separate species status; but diagnostic characters (slightly longer wing and tail, heavier bill, more yellowish-green head, duller flanks, and more yellow on underparts) all appear minor. Two subspecies recognized.
