Taxonomy: Cymbilaimus lineatus sanctaemariae Gyldenstolpe, 1941, Victoria, Pando, Bolivia.
Genus presumed related to Thamnophilus on basis of external morphology, especially the strongly hooked bill, but supporting molecular or other evidence unavailable. Previously treated as conspecific with C. lineatus, but occurs sympatrically with that species. Monotypic.

Distribution: Locally in SE Peru (Cuzco and Madre de Dios), SW Amazonian Brazil (Acre and Rondônia) and NW Bolivia (Pando and N La Paz).
