Spanish: Trepatroncos Turdino
Other common names: Thrush-like Woodcreeper, Plain Woodcreeper
Taxonomy: Dendrocolaptes turdinus M. H. K. Lichtenstein, 1820, no locality = Bahia, Brazil.
Forms a superspecies with D. fuliginosa, and often regarded as conspecific. Race atrirostris of latter considered by some authors to be better placed with present species on basis of vocalizations and presence of crown streaking. Birds from S of range named as race enalincia, but characters on which description based are obscured by marked individual variation in both size and plumage coloration throughout species’ range. Monotypic.
