Eleoscytalopus indigoticus macuquinho white breasted tapaculo

Eleoscytalopus is a genus of tapaculos found in lowland Atlantic forest of eastern Brazil. Until recently, they were included in the genus Scytalopus, but the two species are actually closer to the bristlefronts (genus Merulaxis). Unlike the members of the genus Scytalopus, the members of Eleoscytalopus have largely white underparts and bluish-grey upperparts. The voices of the members of the two genera also differ.
