Fasciated Antshrike (Cymbilaimus lineatus) - HBW 8, p. 533
French: Batara fascié
Spanish: Batará Lineado
Taxonomy: Lanius lineatus Leach, 1814, Berbice = New Amsterdam, Guyana.
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. sanctaemariae, but latter sympatric almost throughout its range. Race intermedius appears to be inseparable on plumage from fasciatus; in addition, described race brangeri appears indistinguishable from and falls within geographical range of latter, and is thus considered untenable. Three subspecies recognized.
Subspecies and Distribution:
- fasciatus Ridgway, 1884 - extreme SE Honduras (El Paraíso), Caribbean slope in Nicaragua and Costa Rica, both slopes in Panama (on Pacific slope locally from Chiriquí to Coclé and in E), W & N Colombia (S in Magdalena Valley to Caldas), NW Venezuela (both Andean slopes E to Mérida and Barinas) and NW Ecuador (Esmeraldas, N Los Ríos).
- intermedius Hartert & Goodson, 1917 - S Venezuela (W Bolívar, Amazonas), S Colombia (S from Meta and Guainía), E Ecuador, E Peru, NW & S Amazonian Brazil (E to R Branco and R Negro and, S of R Amazon, E to R Tocantins and S to Acre, Rondônia and Mato Grosso) and NW & extreme E Bolivia (Pando, La Paz, E Santa Cruz).
- lineatus (Leach, 1814) - E Venezuela (E Bolívar) E to French Guiana and S to NE Amazonian Brazil (N of R Amazon and E of R Branco and R Negro in Amazonas, Pará and Amapá).
