Plain Tyrannulet (Inezia inornata) - HBW 9, p. 311
French: Tyranneau terne
Spanish: Piojito Picudo
Taxonomy: Serpophaga inornata Salvadori, 1897, San Francisco, Tarija, Bolivia.
Genus as currently constituted is probably polyphyletic. Present species was for long placed in genus Serpophaga, and has been proposed that the two genera be merged; syringeal evidence, however, suggests that Inezia is closer to Sublegatus. Monotypic.
Distribution: SE Peru (Madre de Dios), N & E Bolivia, adjacent SW Brazil (N to Rondônia), N Paraguay, and NW Argentina (Salta, Jujuy). Breeding range uncertain, probably only non-breeding visitor in Peru, N Bolivia and Brazil; specimen dates indicate possible breeding as far N as Beni (Bolivia).
