Tyrant-flycatchers (Tyrannidae)

Grenada Flycatcher (Myiarchus nugator) - HBW 9, p. 439

French: Tyran bavard German: Grenadaschopftyrann Spanish: Copetón de Granada

Taxonomy: Myiarchus oberi nugator Riley, 1904, Grenada, Lesser Antilles.
Phylogenetic analysis of mitochondrial DNA nested this species within M. tyrannulus; it further suggested that Caribbean, N Venezuelan and Colombian populations of latter, combined with present species, may warrant separation at species level (as M. erythrocercus). Was often treated in earlier literature as a race of M. tyrannulus; differs in bright orange inside of mouth, but is otherwise weakly differentiated. Monotypic.

Distribution: St Vincent, the Grenadines and Grenada, in S Lesser Antilles.
