Chaco Suiriri

The Suiriri Flycatcher has traditionally been split into two species, the southern Chaco Suiriri with a white belly and the northern Campo Suiriri with a yellow belly and a contrastingly pale rump, but they interbreed widely where they come into contact, and consequently most authorities now consider them to be part of a single species. It has been suggested that the taxon bahiae from north-eastern Brazil, which is considered a subspecies of S. affinis when that species is split from S. suiriri, actually is the result of hybridization between suiriri and affinis. For the most part it resembles the latter, but it lacks a contrastingly pale rump as the former.

The Chaco Suiriri is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.
