Abstract

Analysis of geographic variation of plumage pattern and color within Cinnycerthia fulva (Troglodytidae) of the southern Andes revealed that this taxon, formerly treated as monotypic, consists of three discrete units. We describe two new subspecies; one (C. f. fitzpatricki) from the isolated Cordillera Vilcabamba, depto. Cuzco, Peru, and the other (C. f. gravesi) from depto Puno, Peru, south to depto. Cochabamba, Bolivia.
