Tyrant-flycatchers (Tyrannidae)

Southern Bristle-tyrant (Pogonotriccus eximius) - HBW 9, p. 304

French: Tyranneau distingué German: Weißzügel-Laubtyrann Spanish: Orejerito Cejudo

Taxonomy: Muscicapa eximia Temminck, 1822, Ipanema, São Paulo, Brazil.
Genus previously merged with Phylloscartes, and that treatment retained by many authors; despite superficial similarities, however, the two groups differ significantly in foraging behaviour and postures, possibly also in details of nest (little known), and perhaps are not even closely related to one another. Monotypic.

Distribution: SE Brazil (S Mato Grosso E to Rio de Janeiro, S to Rio Grande do Sul), E Paraguay and NE Argentina (Misiones).
