Tyrant-flycatchers (Tyrannidae)

Antioquia Bristle-tyrant (Pogonotriccus lanyoni) - HBW 9, p. 305

French: Tyranneau de Lanyon German: Antioquialaubtyrann Spanish: Orejerito Antioqueño

Taxonomy: Phylloscartes lanyoni Graves, 1988, El Pescado, Antioquia, Colombia.
Genus previously merged with Phylloscartes, and that treatment retained by many authors; despite superficial similarities, however, the two groups differ significantly in foraging behaviour and postures, possibly also in details of nest (little known), and perhaps are not even closely related to one another. Forms a superspecies with P. orbitalis and P. venezuelanus. Monotypic.

Distribution: E & N slopes of C Andes (in Antioquia and Caldas) and W slope of E cordillera (in Boyacá), in Colombia.
