Black-throated Grosbeak (Saltator fuliginosus) - HBW 16, p. 414
French: Saltator fuligineux
Spanish: Pepitero Fuliginoso
Taxonomy: Loxia fuliginosa Daudin, 1800, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Affiliations of genus uncertain; recent molecular-genetic analyses indicate that it does not belong with present family, and may be better placed with tanagers (Thraupidae). Present species and S. grossus sometimes treated as conspecific, and both sometimes placed in a separate genus, Pitylus. Monotypic.
Distribution: E Brazil (Alagoas; S Bahia and E Minas Gerais S to N Rio Grande do Sul) and NE Argentina (Misiones); possibly also SE Paraguay (no recent records).
