Pygmy Batis (Batis perkeo) - HBW 11, p. 194
French: Pririt pygmée
Spanish: Batis Pigmeo
Other common names: Pygmy Puff-back Flycatcher
Taxonomy: Batis perkeo Neumann, 1907, Darassam, Gurra country, southern Ethiopia.
Relationships uncertain; may be closest to B. minor and/or B. erlangeri. Overlaps to a certain extent with B. molitor and with B. minor, but not with B. soror; seems to occur lower down than B. orientalis on Mt Moroto (Uganda), and seemingly no overlap with this taxon in S Ethiopia. Future research in E Africa could give clue to some relationships there. Monotypic.
Distribution: S Ethiopia, extreme SE Sudan, S Somalia, E Uganda, inland Kenya and NE Tanzania.
