Confined to upper Amazonia, where the species is found from southeast Colombia south through eastern Ecuador to northern Peru, the White-lored Antpitta is a typical Hylopezus antpitta in size, structure, and plumage. Two subspecies are recognized, with that in Colombia being only marginally differentiated in morphology from the nominate which occurs over the rest of the species’ range. The White-lored Antpitta is generally uncommon over most of its distribution, and perhaps in consequence very little is known of the species’ behavior and biology. It occurs in very dense undergrowth of both terra firme and seasonally flooded forests, including overgrown clearings and areas of riparian growth, and, like all antpittas, is most readily detected by its song, a short series of hollow coop notes.
