Geographic Variation

Conopophaga roberti is monotypic.

Related Species

Described as Conopophaga roberti Hellmayr 1905; type locality Igarapé, Açu, Pará, Brazil (Hellmayr 1905a).

The species is named for the collector of the type specimen, Monsignor Alphonse Robert.

At the time of its description, Hellmayr (1905a) considered Hooded Gnateater most closely related to Black-bellied Gnateater (Conopophaga melanogaster). Hooded Gnateater may be more related, however, to Rufous Gnateater (Conopophaga lineata), Ash-throated Gnateater (Conopophaga peruviana), Slaty Gnateater (Conopophaga ardesiaca), and Chestnut-crowned Gnateater (Conopophaga castaneiceps) (Whitney 2003).
