Toro Olive Greenbul (Phyllastrephus hypochloris) - HBW 10, p. 213
French: Bulbul du Toro
Spanish: Bulbul de Toro
Taxonomy: Stelgidillas hypochloris Jackson, 1906, Kibirau, Toro, Uganda.
Has been thought possibly to form a superspecies with P. baumanni, and sometimes considered conspecific, but morphological and vocal differences suggest that they are better treated as distinct species. Further, both sometimes considered to form a superspecies with P. poensis and P. lorenzi, but this seems implausible, and relationship with latter, at least, of these two does not seem close. Monotypic.
Distribution: Extreme S Sudan, E DRCongo (from Beni area S to Itombwe), W & S Uganda and W Kenya.
