Flame-throated Warbler (Parula gutturalis) - HBW 15, p. 742
French: Paruline embrasée
Spanish: Reinita Flamigera
Taxonomy: Compsothlypis gutturalis Cabanis, 1861, Irazú, Costa Rica.
A study of mitochondrial DNA has suggested that this species and P. superciliosa are close to Vermivora, and the two are often placed in latter genus; other studies indicate that both genera as currently constituted are not monophyletic, and suggest that these two species should be placed in a separate genus, for which the name Oreothlypis is available. Monotypic.
Distribution: Highlands from NC Costa Rica (Cordillera Central) S to WC Panama.
