Other common names: Himalayan Flycatcher, Kashmir Red-breasted Flycatcher

Taxonomy: Muscicapa parva subrubra E. J. O. Hartert and Steinbacher, 1934, Sri Lanka.
Originally named as Siphia hyperythra, but that name invalid, as preoccupied. Sometimes placed in genus Muscicapa. Probably forms a superspecies with F. parva; sometimes considered conspecific, but the two differ distinctly in plumage and wing structure. Monotypic.

Distribution: Breeds in Himalayas of NE Pakistan (Neelum Valley) and Kashmir; non-breeding mainly Sri Lanka, also SW India.
