Taxonomy

The thrush-like antpitta was described in 1778 by the French polymath Comte de Buffon in his Histoire Naturelle des Oiseaux. Buffon used the French name "Le grand Béfroi". A hand-colour engraving was published separately to accompany Buffon's description. [2] [3] Buffon did not introduce scientific names but 1783 the French naturalist Johann Hermann coined the binomial name Myrmornin campanisonam for Buffon's bird. [4] The specific epithet campanisona combines the Late Latin campana meaning "bell" with the Latin sonus meaning "sounding". [5] The thrush-like antpitta is now placed in the genus Myrmothera that was introduced in 1816 by Louis Pierre Vieillot. [6]

Distribution and habitat

It is found in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Peru, Suriname, and Venezuela. In 2018, the South American Classification Committee of the American Ornithological Society split one subspecies as Tapajos antpitta (Mymothera subcanescens). [7] Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forest.
