Red-and-white Spinetail (Certhiaxis mustelinus) - HBW 8, p. 299
French: Synallaxe belette
Spanish: Curutié Rojiblanco
Taxonomy: Synallaxis mustelina P. L. Sclater, 1874, Rio Madeira, below the mouth of the Rio dos Marmelos, Amazonas, Brazil.
Some authors include Cranioleuca in present genus because of general morphological similarities, but most treat them as separate genera because of differences in nest structure. Proposed race frenatus (from E Brazil) is not diagnosable. Monotypic.
Distribution: R Amazon and some major tributaries in NE Peru (S along R Ucayali), extreme SE Colombia (SE Amazonas) and Brazil (E to extreme E Pará, including lower R Juruá and lower R Purus, and S along R Madeira to near Bolivian border).
