Tabora Cisticola (Cisticola angusticauda) - HBW 11, p. 457
French: Cisticole à queue fine
Spanish: Cistícola Colifino
Taxonomy: Cisticola angusticauda Reichenow, 1891, Gonda, Tabora District, Tanzania.
Forms a superspecies with C. fulvicapilla; often treated as conspecific, and some evidence of hybrids towards C & E Zambia, but the two differ in wing formula, and they occur in different habitats and have subtly different songs in area of overlap in NW Zambia. Both may be closely allied to C. rufus and C. troglodytes. Species name is a noun phrase and thus indeclinable. Monotypic.
Distribution: SW Uganda, extreme SW Kenya, E Rwanda, W & C Tanzania, SE DRCongo and N Zambia.
