New Bird São Paulo Antwren
The bird has been placed in 
the genus Formicivora which puts it in the  Formicaridae family with the Antthrushes It has been given the name Antwren which are placed in Thamnophilidae. Avibase & Wikipeadea place some members of the genus in Thamnophilidae and others in Formicaridae. Confused I am.
Never mind the controversy it is a great bird, as this Photo shows. Visit web page.

The bird hasn't been given a conservation status but it is in urgent need of protection.
