Finsch's Flycatcher-thrush (Stizorhina finschi) - HBW 10, p. 620
French: Stizorhin de Finsch
Spanish: Zorzal de Finsch
Taxonomy: Cassinia finschi Sharpe, 1870, Fantee, Ghana.
Genus often merged with Neocossyphus; the two form a group which, in turn, is most closely related to New World Myadestes. Close relationship to S. fraseri supported by phylogenetic analyses; hybridization occurs in Nigeria, suggesting that it may be more appropriate to regard the two as conspecific, but S. fraseri does not repond to playback of present species elsewhere. Species name often listed as finschii, but original spelling is finschi, which must stand. Monotypic.
Distribution: Sierra Leone E to Nigeria.
