Cisticolas and Allies (Cisticolidae)

Cinnamon-breasted Warbler (Euryptila subcinnamomea) - HBW 11, p. 486

French: Camaroptère cannelle German: Zimtbrustsänger Spanish: Camaróptera Canela
Other common names: Kopje Warbler, Cinnamon-breasted Grey Warbler

Taxonomy: Drymoica subcinnamomea A. Smith, 1847, Kamiesberg, Namaqualand, South Africa.
Was previously linked to the sylviid genus Bradypterus. Appears to be closely allied to Calamonastes, but lacks a tailored nest and nostril structure differs. Paler birds in the more arid N of range described as race petrophila; variation in colour is, however, largely clinal, and naming of geographical races considered unwarranted. Monotypic.

Distribution: Semi-arid rocky areas of S Namibia and W South Africa.
