The White-browed Antbird is a beautiful Thamnophilidae, principally unmarked dark gray above and over much of the body, with a broad white supercilium, a neat black throat patch, and red irides in males, while females are largely brown above with pale-spotted wing coverts, clean white underparts, a broad buffy-yellow supercilium, and a blackish mask. This species is a widespread inhabitant of more disturbed habitats through much of Amazonia and the foothills of the Andes, with the exception of north-central Amazonian Brazil, which region is generally considered the most species depauperate in the basin. Four subspecies are generally recognized, of which some are relatively well marked morphologically. The White-browed Antbird appears to forage exclusively apart from mixed-species flocks, but always remains very close to the ground.
