Selva Cacique (Cacicus koepckeae) - HBW 16, p. 747
French: Cassique de Koepcke
Spanish: Cacique de Koepcke
Taxonomy: Cacicus koepckeae Lowery and O’Neill, 1965, Balta, c. 300 m, south-east Ucayali, Peru.
Could been included in genus Archiplanus, if recognized. Morphological and biogeographical evidence indicate close relationship to C. sclateri; has been suggested that the two might be conspecific, but songs differ (though some calls similar). Has been regarded as close relative of C. chrysopterus, with the two perhaps forming a superspecies. Monotypic.
Distribution: W Amazonia in E Peru (Ucayali, Cuzco and Madre de Dios) and nearby W Brazil (Acre).
