Taxonomy: Dendrocincla anabatina P. L. Sclater, 1859, Omoa, Cortés, Honduras.
Has been suggested as being sister-species of D. tyrannina. Race saturata merged with nominate by some authors, but darker, more olive upperparts and allopatric distribution support recognition as separate race. Three subspecies recognized.
