Ash-breasted Antbird (Myrmoborus lugubris) - HBW 8, p. 642
French: Alapi lugubre
Spanish: Hormiguero Lúgubre
Taxonomy: Myrmonax lugubris Cabanis, 1847, no locality = probably Pará (Belém?), Brazil.
Similar to other members of genus in morphology, vocalizations and behaviour. Races stictopterus and femininus, with geographical distributions interposed between nominate and berlepschi, are apparently also phenotypically intermediate between those; their taxonomic status is in need of review. Four subspecies recognized.
Subspecies and Distribution:
- berlepschi (Hellmayr, 1910) - NE Peru (Loreto) and extreme W Amazonian Brazil (R Solimões E to Tonantins).
- stictopterus Todd, 1927 - C Amazonian Brazil (lower R Negro and nearby R Solimões).
- femininus (Hellmayr, 1910) - lower R Madeira, in SC Amazonian Brazil.
- lugubris (Cabanis, 1847) - R Amazon, from R Madeira E to Baía do Guajará, occurring in CE Amazonas and NC Pará.
