2 Previously treated in the family Pipridae, but see Mobley & Prum (1995) [Mobley, 1995 #2696].
3 Doubtfully diagnosable; see Fitzpatrick (2004) [Fitzpatrick, 2004 #12197].
4 Includes dilutus, see Olson (1993) [Olson, 1993 #14223], and timothei, considered undiagnosable, see Fitzpatrick (2004) [Fitzpatrick, 2004 #12197].
5 Considered to form a superspecies with P. cancrominus; see Sibley & Monroe (1990) [Sibley, 1990 #3636].
6 Olson (1993) [Olson, 1993 #14223] treated this as two species - lowland mystaceus and albogularis here, following Fitzpatrick (2004) [Fitzpatrick, 2004 #12197], treated as subspecies groups with his 'intermediate' form partridgei tentatively attached to the more montane group.
