Pallid Spinetail (Cranioleuca pallida) - HBW 8, p. 295
French: Synallaxe pâle
German: Minas Gerais-Baumschlüpfer
Spanish: Curutié Pálido
Taxonomy: Synallaxis pallidus Wied, 1831, Campos Geraës = southern Minas Gerais, Brazil.
Possible relationship to the C. curtata superspecies proposed by some authors on basis of plumage, vocalizations and montane distribution. Others suggest that it is part of a superspecies that includes C. subcristata, C. pyrrhophia, C. henricae, C. obsoleta, C. albicapilla, C. antisiensis and C. baroni, but genetic data suggest that at least the last two of those are not part of this lineage. Monotypic.
Distribution: SE Brazil, from C Minas Gerais and SE Bahia S to E Paraná.
