Scalloped Woodcreeper (Lepidocolaptes falcinellus) - HBW 8, p. 443
French: Grimpar festonné
Spanish: Trepatroncos Festoneado
Taxonomy: Thripobrotus falcinellus Cabanis and Heine, 1859, Montevideo and Buenos Aires; error = probably São Paulo, Brazil.
Sister-species to L. squamatus; previously regarded as conspecific, but three plumage characters (crown pattern, and coloration of back and of tail) and measurements differ significantly between populations on opposite sides of R Paraíba do Sul, in N São Paulo; the depression associated with this river also represents a boundary for several other well-marked taxa. Monotypic.
Distribution: S Brazil from N São Paulo (S bank of R Paraíba do Sul) S to S Rio Grande do Sul, also adjacent SE Paraguay (Alto Paraná), NE Argentina (Misiones, NE Corrientes) and NE Uruguay.
