The Spot-backed Antshrike is a distinctive, strongly patterned antshrike of forest in southeastern Brazil, eastern Paraguay, and extreme northeastern Argentina (Missiones). It is black above with heavy white barring and spotting, and white below with a variable amount of buffy-orange on the flanks and undertail coverts. Like many species in its family, it is best detected by call, in this case a long, whistled trill. Spot-backed Antshrikes forage on arthropods in dense vegetation and vines in the canopy, often in pairs.
