Crowned Slaty Flycatcher (Griseotyrannus aurantioatrocristatus) - HBW 9, p. 416
French: Tyran oriflamme
Spanish: Tuquito Gris
Taxonomy: T[yrannus] aurantio-atro cristatus [sic] d’Orbigny and Lafresnaye, 1837, Valle Grande, Santa Cruz, Bolivia.
Despite its very different plumage, was for long placed in genus Empidonomus owing to similarities in voice and behaviour; later accorded a monotypic genus based primarily on several apparently uniquely derived differences in syringeal morphology. Molecular-sequence data indicate strong support for Empidonomus varius as its closest relative, the two genera constituting a monophyletic group with Tyrannus. Two subspecies recognized.
