Short-billed Antwren

Myrmotherula obscura Zimmer, JT, 1932

The Moustached Antwren (Myrmotherula ignota) is a species of small Neotropical bird in the Thamnophilidae family. It has two allopatric subspecies, both sometimes considered separate monotypic species: The Griscom's Antwren (M. (i.) ignota) is found the Chocó of north-western Ecuador, western Colombia and eastern Panama, and the Short-billed Antwren (M. (ignota) obscura) is found in the Amazon of north-eastern Peru, eastern Ecuador, south-eastern Colombia and north-western Brazil. The former has sometimes been considered conspecific with the Pygmy Antwren, but based on voices it has been recommended treating ignota and obscura as a subspecies of a single species. Both are found in the sub-canopy of humid lowland forests. Source: Wikipedia
