Mouse-coloured Penduline-tit (Anthoscopus musculus) - HBW 13, p. 72

French: Rémiz souris German: Graubeutelmeise Spanish: Pájaro-moscón Gris
Other common names: Mouse-coloured Tit

Taxonomy: Aegithalus [sic] musculus Hartlaub, 1882, Lado, Upper Nile, south Sudan.
Forms a superspecies with A. punctifrons, A. parvulus, A. caroli and A. minutus. Birds from Kenya have been separated as a geographical race (guasso) on basis of rather greyer plumage compared with birds from farther N, but age-related feather wear could be responsible for such apparent differences. Monotypic.

Distribution: SE Sudan (E from Lado and Tombe), Ethiopia, NW, N & S Somalia, NE Uganda, Kenya and extreme NE Tanzania.
