Small, streaky antpitta found only in a small area of the eastern Andes in northern Peru. Note the strongly marked underparts and the white mustache. Male has a chestnut face and forehead; female lacks this and has a much thicker eye-ring. Inhabits the understory of epiphyte-laden cloud forest. Unlike most larger antpittas, it is usually seen on a low perch and only occasionally comes down to the ground. Visits a feeder in at least one private reserve. Song is a short, high-pitched whistle given about every 10 seconds.
