Russet-mantled Foliage-gleaner (Philydor dimidiatum) - HBW 8, p. 338
French: Anabate mantelé
German: Ockerbrauner Blattspäher
Spanish: Ticotico del Planalto
Other common names: Planalto Foliage-gleaner; Baer’s Foliage-gleaner (baeri)
Taxonomy: Anabates dimidiatus Pelzeln, 1859, Sangrador and Rio Manso, Mato Grosso, Brazil.
Possibly better placed in genus Syndactyla; in several respects (bill shape, vocalizations) more similar to members of that genus than to those of present genus. Species name often spelt “dimidiatus”, but must agree with neuter gender of genus. The taxon S. mirandae, described from C Brazil (Goiás) and subsequently treated as a race of S. rufosuperciliata, is in fact a synonym of present species, presumably of race baeri. Latter formerly considered a separate species. Two subspecies recognized.
Subspecies and Distribution:
- dimidiatum (Pelzeln, 1859) - SC Brazil (S Mato Grosso).
- baeri Hellmayr, 1911 - interior SE Brazil (Goiás, Minas Gerais) and EC Paraguay (Concepción).
