Ujamba, Mount Kungwe [= Mount Mahale], west Tanzania.
Mostly treated as a race of A. rufogularis since “tape playback experiments” evidently produced a response in the race eidos; nevertheless, differs in its white vs pale rufous throat in female (3); paler, greyer upperparts in both sexes (1); bill, on combined published evidence#R#R and limited sampling in NHMUK, rather longer (allow 1); and (based on single publicly available recording and despite claims to the contrary#R) decidedly stronger, less stridulating song (3). Fuller vocal sampling will therefore help determine whether subspecies status might be more appropriate for present species, but a precautionary interpretation of the sparse evidence marginally favours species rank. Race eidos synonymized with nominate in some treatments#R#R#R but upperparts appear shaded greener in limited NHMUK material, so provisionally retained here. Two subspecies recognized.
