Ashy-headed Tyrannulet (Phyllomyias cinereiceps) - HBW 9, p. 262
French: Tyranneau à tête cendrée
Spanish: Mosquerito Cenizo
Taxonomy: Tyrannulus cinereiceps P. L. Sclater, 1860, Pallatanga, Chimborazo, Ecuador.
Genus as presently constituted may be polyphyletic; objective phylogenetic analysis, using molecular characters as well as anatomical ones, is required in order to define generic limits. Anatomical evidence suggests that P. fasciatus, P. griseocapilla and P. griseiceps may be unrelated to others of genus, some or all of which possibly better placed in resurrected genus Tyranniscus. Present species was for long placed in latter. Monotypic.
Distribution: Andes in extreme SW Venezuela (S Táchira), Colombia (all three cordilleras), W & E Ecuador and E Peru (S to Cuzco).
