His name means the (Greek) = skleros hard, hard; and oura = tail; and (Latin) = scandere climb, climb. ⇒ (Ave) hard tail climber.


Averages 19,5cm and has syndactyly (connection between the 3rd and 4th fingers), which may be an adaptation to the act of landing on vertical perches.

Voice: prolonged stanza, trill of whistles clear in gently undulating sequence recalling the song of the canary-of-kingdom and ants pope, as Myrmoborus or Merulaxis. Call: "Spix, Spix".


It basically feed on insects, larvae and beetle hunted by the soil on the substrate the dense forest between the dry leaves or even fallen old trunks.
