Ovenbirds (Furnariidae)

Scribble-tailed Canastero (Asthenes maculicauda) - HBW 8, p. 308

French: Synallaxe à queue marbrée German: Roststirncanastero Spanish: Canastero Estriado

Taxonomy: Siptornis maculicauda Berlepsch, 1901, Iquico, 4000 m, La Paz, Bolivia.
Plumage pattern and biogeography indicate that this species is most closely related to A. flammulata and A. virgata; probably part of the superspecies formed by those. Disjunct population in Argentina may represent an undescribed race. Monotypic.

Distribution: Andes of S Peru (Puno), Bolivia (La Paz, Cochabamba, sight records also from Tarija) and NW Argentina (Sierra de Aconquija, in Tucumán and NC Catamarca).
