Ovenbirds (Furnariidae)

Chestnut-throated Spinetail (Synallaxis cherriei) - HBW 8, p. 280

French: Synallaxe à gorge marron German: Orangekehl-Dickichtschlüpfer Spanish: Pijuí Gorgicastaño

Taxonomy: Synallaxis cherriei cherriei Gyldenstolpe, 1930, Barão Melgaco, Rio Gi-Paraná, Mato Grosso, Brazil.
Previously named S. rufogularis, but that name is invalid, as preoccupied. Almost certainly the sister-species of S. rutilans, and type specimen was at one time considered to be an aberrant individual of race amazonica of that species. Race saturata often considered synonymous with napoensis, but distinguishable from latter by paler overall plumage. Three subspecies recognized.

Subspecies and Distribution:

  • napoensis Gyldenstolpe, 1930 - S Colombia (Putumayo) and E Ecuador (W Sucumbíos, W Napo).
  • saturata Carriker, 1934 - N & C Peru (San Martín, Ayacucho).
  • cherriei Gyldenstolpe, 1930 - C Amazonian Brazil (Rondônia, N Mato Grosso, and S Pará from lower R Xingu E to Serra dos Carajás).
