Wrens (Troglodytidae)

Inca Wren (Thryothorus eisenmanni) - HBW 10, p. 420

French: Troglodyte inca German: Inkazaunkönig Spanish: Cucarachero Inca

Taxonomy: Thryothorus eisenmanni Parker and O’Neill, 1985, San Luis, Cuzco, Peru.
Closely related to, and has been considered to form a superspecies with, T. euophrys, but differs markedly in song and (especially when compared with geographically closest races of latter) in plumage; neither species responds to playback of the other’s song. Monotypic.

Distribution: Cuzco (from Cordillera de Vilcabamba S to valleys of R Santa Marta and R Urubamba), in S Peru.
