Cotingas (Cotingidae)

White-cheeked Cotinga (Zaratornis stresemanni) - HBW 9, p. 75

French: Cotinga à joues blanches German: Weißohrkotinga Spanish: Cotinga Cariblanco

Taxonomy: Zaratornis stresemanni Koepcke, 1954, River Rímac, Lima, Peru.
Genus sometimes merged with Ampelion, but differs in details of skull structure and has distinct plumage. Both genera, along with Doliornis, appear to form a clade, which suggested by anatomical research and recent genetic data as being closely related to Phytotoma. Monotypic.

Distribution: Andes of W Peru (La Libertad S locally to Ayacucho).
