French: Mérulaxe des bambous
Spanish: Tapaculo Overo
Taxonomy: Leptorhynchus guttatus Ménétriés, 1835, Cuiabá-Sabará, Minas Gerais, south-east Brazil.
Systematic position previously disputed; owing to unusual tarsal scutellation, has been variously placed in Thamnophilidae, Troglodytidae and Polioptilidae, but syrinx and sternum are typical of Rhinocryptidae. Monotypic.
Distribution: SE Brazil from SE Minas Gerais and W Espírito Santo S to Paraná, and adjacent NE Argentina (Misiones); probably also SE Paraguay.
