Taxonomy: Muscisaxicola fluviatilis P. L. Sclater and Salvin, 1866, lower River Ucayali, Peru.
Usually considered closely allied with M. maculirostris; recent phylogenetic work, however, suggests that this species may be more closely related to other taxa (e.g. Muscigralla) than it is to current congeners. Monotypic.
