The stripe-cheeked woodpecker is a species of woodpecker endemic to Panama. The males are an orangish-brown above with an olive barred yellowish rump, an olive chest and throat with white spots, and dull yellow underparts. Its crown, nape and moustachial region is a bright red and it has a white streak on the lower cheek. Females are similar to the males, but have a dark grey crown and moustachial region. It is uncommon in humid forests in the Panamanian foothills. These woodpeckers are generally quiet and inconspicuous and forage either alone or in pairs in the low or middle level of trees.
