SPECIES INFO

The Spot-winged Antbird (Schistocichla leucostigma) is a species of bird in the Thamnophilidae family. Until recently, it included the Roraiman, Humaita, Brownish-headed and Rufous-faced Antbird as subspecies, but based on differences in voice and plumage it has been recommended treating them as separate species. As presently defined, the Spot-winged Antbird includes the subspecies infuscata, subplumbea and intensa.

It is found in humid forest in the Amazon north of the Amazon River, and in the far western Amazon and adjacent lower east Andean slopes. Its conservation status has not been assessed following the split into several species, but while it generally is uncommon, it is unlikely to be threatened.
