Widely distributed over the greater part of the Amazon Basin, Pink-throated Becard often is considered to be most closely related to One-colored Becard (Pachyramphus homochrous), Rose-throated Becard (Pachyramphus aglaiae), and Crested Becard (Pachyramphus validus); these species have allopatric or parapatric distributions. Male Pink-throated Becard has very dark plumage, with a relatively small and dark pink throat patch, while females are predominantly cinnamon below and over the face and neck, with a grayish crown and mantle, and rufous-fringed dark wings. Pink-throated Becard occupies tall terra firme forest, where it frequently joins large mixed-species foraging flocks containing both insectivores and frugivores in the midstory to subcanopy.
