Bulbuls (Pycnonotidae)

Green-tailed Bristlebill (Bleda eximius) - HBW 10, p. 219

French: Bulbul à queue verte German: Grünschwanzbleda Spanish: Bulbul Coliverde

Taxonomy: Trichophorus eximius Hartlaub, 1855, Dabocrom, Ghana.
Suggestion that this forms a species pair with B. syndactylus undermined by recent molecular evidence. Was previously treated as conspecific with B. notatus, but recent acoustic and morphological studies indicate that the two are separate species; taxonomic confusion resulted in uncertainty over which of the two was involved in published observations in some of the earlier literature. Species name sometimes given as eximia, but genus is masculine. Monotypic.

Distribution: Sierra Leone E to SW Ghana.
