White-eyed Foliage-gleaner (Automolus leucophthalmus) - HBW 8, p. 346
French: Anabate aux yeux blancs
Spanish: Ticotico Ojiblanco
Taxonomy: Anabates leucophthalmus Wied, 1821, Rio Cachoeira, Bahia, Brazil.
Forms a superspecies with A. infuscatus, as suggested by voice, plumage pattern and biogeography. Race lammi more similar vocally to race paraensis of that species than to other races of present species. Race sulphurascens varies clinally, with populations in more humid areas darker and those in drier interior paler. Proposed race bangsi, from Bahia (Brazil), regarded as a synonym of nominate, following initial confusion over type locality of latter. Three subspecies recognized.

- lammi J. T. Zimmer, 1947 - E Brazil (Paraíba, Pernambuco).
