Sulphur-bellied Tyrant-manakin (Neopelma sulphureiventer) - HBW 9, p. 165

French: Manakin à ventre jaune German: Westliche Gelbbauchpipra Spanish: Saltarín Ventrisulfúreo
Other common names: Sulphur-bellied Manakin

Taxonomy: Scotothorus sulphureiventer Hellmayr, 1903, Villa Bella de Mato Grosso, Mato Grosso, Brazil.
Systematic position of genus doubtful; possibly closest to Tyranneutes, and both genera almost certainly only distantly related to the typical piprids; probably closer to the Tyrannidae but traditionally included in present family, where retained pending further study. Present species considered to form a superspecies with its four congeners. Monotypic.

Distribution: E & SE Peru, N Bolivia (S to Cochabamba and N Santa Cruz) and adjacent parts of W Brazil.
