Stripe-headed Antpitta (Grallaria andicolus) - HBW 8, p. 720
French: Grallaire des Andes
Spanish: Tororoí Andino
Other common names: Puno Antpitta (punensis)
Taxonomy: Hypsibamon andicolus Cabanis, 1873, Maraynioc, Junín, Peru.
Relationships uncertain; possibly merits separation in monspecific genus. Song of race punensis remains unknown, but call differs; may be better treated as a separate species. Species name andicolus is a noun and as such is invariable, so and must not be altered to “andicola”. Two subspecies currently recognized.
Subspecies and Distribution:
- andicolus (Cabanis, 1873) - Peru locally in W Andes (S Cajamarca S to Ayacucho) and in C Andes (S Amazonas S to Apurímac).
- punensis Chubb, 1918 - SE Peru (Cuzco, Puno) and W Bolivia (W La Paz).
