Spot-breasted Antvireo (Dysithamnus stictothorax) - HBW 8, p. 569
French: Batara tachet
Spanish: Batarito Pechipinto
Taxonomy: Myothera strictothorax [sic] Temminck, 1823, Bahia, Brazil.
Relationships of genus not clearly established; preliminary molecular evidence suggests affiliation with Thamnophilus, and morphological characteristics have connected it with Thamnomanes. Present species and D. mentalis, D. striaticeps, D. puncticeps and D. xanthopterus appear to form a monophyletic group to which other species placed in the genus are probably closely related. Monotypic.
Distribution: SE Brazil in coastal region from S Bahia S to Santa Catarina, extending inland in Minas Gerais (R Doce region) and São Paulo, and NE Argentina (Misiones).
