Jelski's Chat-tyrant (Ochthoeca jelskii) - HBW 9, p. 382
French: Pitajo de Jelski
Spanish: Pitajo de Jelski
Taxonomy: Ochthoeca jelskii Taczanowski, 1883, Montaña de Nancho, Peru.
Sometimes placed with O. frontalis, O. pulchella and O. diadema in a separate genus, Silvicultrix, but genetic and anatomical data indicate that this would make present genus paraphyletic. All four form a superspecies. Formerly considered conspecific with O. frontalis and, later, with O. pulchella; possibly closest to former. Monotypic.
Distribution: SW Ecuador and NW Peru (S to Lima, in La Libertad crossing to E side of R Marañón W of C Andes).
