French: Zostérops cannelle German: Zimtbrillenvogel Spanish: Anteojitos Canelo
Other common names: Cinnamon Rufous-eye/White-eye

Taxonomy: Hypocryptadius cinnamomeus E. J. O. Hartert, 1903, Mount Apo and Mount Kitanglad, Mindanao, Philippines.
True affinities unclear; may merit placement in separate family. Birds from Gandawan (on Mt Malindang) described as race malindangensis and those from Daggayan (in Misamis Oriental) as pallidigula, but differences from birds in rest of species’ range considered trivial. Treated as monotypic.

Distribution: Mountains of Mindanao, in S Philippines: recorded from Mt Malindang, Misamis Oriental (and coastal mountains at Daggayan), Mt Kitanglad, Mt Hilong-Hilong, Mt Apo, Mt Matutum, Mt Mayo.
