Planalto Tyrannulet (Phyllomyias fasciatus) - HBW 9, p. 259
French: Tyranneau fascié
Spanish: Mosquerito Oliváceo
Taxonomy: P[ipra] fasciata Thunberg, 1822, Jaguacara, Bahia, Brazil.
Genus as presently constituted may be polyphyletic; objective phylogenetic analysis, using molecular characters as well as anatomical ones, is required in order to define generic limits. Anatomical evidence suggests that present species may be closest to P. griseocapilla and P. griseiceps and that all three perhaps unrelated to others of genus, some or all of which possibly better placed in resurrected genus Tyranniscus. Three subspecies recognized.
Subspecies and Distribution:
- cearae Hellmayr, 1927 - NE Brazil (Ceará and Rio Grande do Norte S to Sergipe).
