Wrenthrush (Zeledonia coronata) - HBW 15, p. 798
French: Paruline de Zeledon
Spanish: Reinita de Zeledón
Other common names: Zeledonia
Taxonomy: Zeledonia coronata Ridgway, 1889, Laguna del Volcán de Póas, Costa Rica.
Formerly placed in its own family (Zeledoniidae) and thought most closely related to wrens (Troglodytidae) or thrushes (Turdidae); later transferred to present family, within which believed probably closest to Basileuterus. Recent research, however, indicates that this species appears not to form part of a monophyletic parulid family. Further research required. Monotypic.
Distribution: N Costa Rica S to WC Panama.
