Includes Eastern Woodhaunter & Western Woodhaunter
Six subspecies are recognized:
Some authorities have split Striped Woodhaunter into 'Eastern Woodhaunter' (Hyloctistes subulatus -- last two subspecies, both found east of the Andes) and 'Western Woodhaunter' (Hyloctistes virgatus -- first four subspecies from Central America and west of the Andes in Colombia and Ecuador). These two groups are supposedly differing in voice.
Moist lowland forests to foothills.
Search for invertebrates in clumps of dead leaves and other debris in epiphytes, vines, branches etc. Often with mixed species flocks.
