Mongbwalu, north-east DRCongo.
Genus has been merged with Lioptilus, but perhaps closer to Phyllanthus; differs from latter in smaller and weaker bill with relatively broader base (less laterally compressed), more slit-like nostrils (as Turdoides), and more slender feet. Present species forms a superspecies with K. rufocinctus, and sometimes considered to be conspecific. Individuals of present species seen in mountains W of L Kivu not assigned to race, but possibly belong with nominate. Three subspecies recognized.
