Bedford's Paradise-flycatcher (Terpsiphone bedfordi) - HBW 11, p. 286
French: Tchitrec de Bedford
Spanish: Monarca-colilargo de Bedford
Taxonomy: Trochocercus bedfordi Ogilvie-Grant, 1907, Mawambi, 3000 feet [c. 915 m], eastern DRCongo.
Often considered conspecific with T. rufiventer, but hybridization with race ignea of latter is restricted to a very narrow zone of overlap, where the two interbreed at a low rate; the two differ also in morphology and other characters. Monotypic.
Distribution: NE & E DRCongo, in two separate areas: NE Ituri (from near Arebi S to Mawambi and to c. 50 km N of Irumi), and area W of Itombwe and Kahuzi Mts (from Kabunga S to S limit of lowland forest).
