White-faced Whitestart (Myioborus albifacies) - HBW 15, p. 785
French: Paruline à face blanche
Spanish: Candelita Cariblanca
Other common names: White-faced Redstart
Taxonomy: Myioborus albifacies Phelps, Sr and Phelps, Jr, 1946, Cerro Paraque, 1450 m, Territorio Amazonas, Venezuela.
Forms a superspecies with M. castaneocapilla and M. cardonai, with M. pariae presumably part of same group. Previously regarded as closest to, and possibly conspecific with, M. cardonai, but recent phylogenetic study suggests that latter may be more closely related to race maguirei (and perhaps also duidae) of M. castaneocapilla. Monotypic.
Distribution: SC Venezuela: Cerros Sipapo (Paraque), Guanay and Yaví, in NW Amazonas.
