Puno Canastero (“punensis group”); Bolivian Canastero (cuchacanchae); Lillo’s Canastero (lilloi) Taxonomy: Synallaxis Sclateri Cabanis, 1878, Sierra de Córdoba, Argentina. Considered by some to form a superspecies with A. wyatti and A. anthoides. Possibly best treated as conspecific with former, as birds in L Titicaca region (Peru-Bolivia border) appear to be intergrades between the two; race punensis (with cuchacanchae and lilloi) previously considered conspecific with A. wyatti, and often treated as a separate species.
