Tiny Tyrant-manakin (Tyranneutes virescens) - HBW 9, p. 166
French: Manakin minuscule
German: Nördliche Zwergpipra
Spanish: Saltarín Diminuto
Taxonomy: Pipra virescens Pelzeln, 1868, Manaus, Brazil.
Systematic position of genus uncertain; probably closest to Neopelma, and both genera seem only distantly related to the typical piprids; probably closer to the Tyrannidae but traditionally included in present family, where retained pending further study. Forms a superspecies with T. stolzmanni; ranges of the two approach one another closely, being separated by R Branco, lower R Negro and R Amazon. Monotypic.
Distribution: E Venezuela (NE & SE Bolívar), the Guianas and NE Amazonian Brazil (from R Branco and lower R Negro E to Amapá).
