Formerly considered a manakin and placed in the family Pipridae, but anatomical and other features typical of present family; appears most closely related to a group that includes Myiophobus, Myiobius, Terenotriccus, Pyrrhomyias and Hirundinea. Validity of race helenae questionable; further research required. Two subspecies currently recognized.
