Southern Antpipit (Corythopis delalandi) - HBW 9, p. 293
French: Corythopis de Delalande
German: Südlicher Brustbandtyrann
Spanish: Mosquero Terrestre Sureño
Other common names: Delalande’s Antpipit
Taxonomy: Muscicapa delalandi Lesson, 1830, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Genus was for long placed in the family Formicariidae or together with the gnateaters (Conopophaga) in the Conopophagidae; numerous anatomical, behavioural and genetic characters, however, indicate affinities within present family, probably closest to Pseudotriccus. This species forms a superspecies with C. torquatus; the two are possibly conspecific, but differ vocally, also slightly in plumage, and ranges apparently overlap in C Brazil (upper R Xingu drainage). Monotypic.
Distribution: E Bolivia (E Santa Cruz), S Brazil (S Mato Grosso, S Goiás, S Maranhão, Minas Gerais and Espírito Santo S to NW Rio Grande do Sul), E Paraguay and NE Argentina (Misiones, NE Corrientes).
