Common Scale-backed Antbird

Willisornis poecilinotus (Cabanis, 1847)

The Common Scale-backed Antbird (Willisornis poecilinotus) is a species of bird in the Thamnophilidae family, the antbirds. It has often been included in the genus Hylophylax, but is now known to be part of a different clade, leading to its placement in the genus Willisornis. It was briefly placed in Dichropogon, but this name is preoccupied by a genus of asilid flies (Dichropogon Bezzi, 1910). It formerly included the Xingu Antbird as a subspecies. Source: Wikipedia
