French: Cubla à pieds roses
Spanish: Cubla Patirrosada
Taxonomy: Dryoscopus angolensis Hartlaub, 1860, Bembe, Loanda Province [= Uíge], Angola.
Apparently most closely allied to D. sabini, juveniles of the two being strikingly alike and females very similar to each other in plumage. Race boydi not well defined, possibly represents clinal variation and perhaps better merged with nominate. Four subspecies recognized.
