Heads up: Some or all of the identifications affected by this split may have been replaced with identifications of Geothlypis. This happens when we can't automatically assign an identification to one of the output taxa. Review identifications of Geothlypis aequinoctialis 9739

Taxonomic Split 119173 (Committed on 12-29-2022)

We recognize three species this complex, based on plumage differences and deep genetic divergence (as assessed by mitochondrial NDA: Escalante et al. 2009): a monotypic Masked Yellowthroat Geothlypis aequinoctialis; a polytypic Black-lored Yellowthroat Geothlypis auricularis (including peruviana); and a monotypic Southern Yellowthroat Geothlypis velata. More comprehensive reviews of genetic divergence and geographic variation in vocalizations would be helpful, however.
