Black-capped Foliage-gleaner (Philydor atricapillus) - HBW 8, p. 337
French: Anabate à tête noire
Spanish: Ticotico Cabecinegro
Taxonomy: Anabates atricapillus Wied, 1821, Rio Catolé, Bahia, Brazil.
Evidently forms a superspecies with P. novaesi. Named form Philydor hylobius, previously believed by some to be an isolated population of present species, in fact represents the juvenile plumage of Automolus roraimae. Species name invariable, so, in contrast to the cases of several other taxa currently recognized within Philydor, must not be made to agree with neuter gender of genus. Monotypic.
Distribution: SE Brazil (S Bahia S to S Mato Grosso do Sul and NE Rio Grande do Sul), E Paraguay and extreme NE Argentina (N Misiones).
