French: Cassique casqué
Spanish: Cacique de Yelmo
Taxonomy: Cassicus Oseryi Deville, 1849, Pebas, Peru.
Genus formerly subsumed in Psarocolius, but mitochondrial DNA indicates that this species belongs to a separate clade together with Ocyalus latirostris; as its morphology is quite different from that of latter, a generic separation is recognized. Monotypic.
Distribution: W Amazonia from E Ecuador (Sucumbios) and SE Colombia (Amazonas) S to E Peru, W Brazil (W Amazonas, Acre) and N Bolivia.
