Pale-browed Treehunter (Cichlocolaptes leucophrus) - HBW 8, p. 340
French: Anabate à sourcils blancs
Spanish: Ticotico Cejipálido
Other common names: Rusty-rumped Cichlocolaptes
Taxonomy: Anabates leucophrus Jardine and Selby, 1830, Brazil.
Genus has sometimes been merged into a broadly defined Philydor. No obvious close relatives; superficial plumage similarities may suggest relationship to Pseudocolaptes, Heliobletus, Syndactyla or Hyloctistes, and foraging behaviour perhaps most similar to that of first of those. Species name regularly misspelled as “leucophrys”. Two subspecies recognized.
