Hypoedaleus guttatus


Black upperparts with bold white spots and white bands on its black tail. White underparts with black spots turning to buff and ochraceous on the flanks and undertail coverts. The female is similar but is entirely tinged ochraceous below while the spots above have a buff tinge.


Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay.


Some authorities consider this a monotypic species, others recognize two subspecies guttatus and leucogaster.
