Sunbirds (Nectariniidae)

Moreau's Sunbird (Cinnyris moreaui) - HBW 13, p. 280

French: Souimanga de Moreau German: Moreaunektarvogel Spanish: Suimanga de Moreau

Taxonomy: Cinnyris mediocris moreaui W. L. Sclater, 1933, Maskati, Nguru Range, Tanzania.
Genus often subsumed in Nectarinia. May form a superspecies with C. mediocris and C. loveridgei; former suspicion that this species may be a hybrid between those two is not borne out by recent DNA analyses, which strongly indicate its validity as a full species and suggest that it is sister to C. loveridgei. Monotypic.

Distribution: Mountains of E Tanzania.
