Campothera [sic] Tullbergi
In recent times usually considered conspecific with C. taeniolaema owing to “close structural similarity”, but former treatment as distinct species preferred here on account of head below crown minutely peppered grey on whitish, becoming tiny grey-brown mottling across pale yellowish breast and semi-barred flanks to undertail-coverts with mostly plain pale yellow mid-belly vs all of this area densely barred yellowish-stone and dusky-brown (at least 3); presence of red flecking on lesser coverts (shoulder) (2); female with black vs maroon lores (1); longer bill (effect size 3.32; score 2). Proposed races bansoensis and wellsi (Banso Mts, in W Cameroon) and poensis and insularis (Bioko) are synonyms of tullbergi. Monotypic.
SE Nigeria (Obudu Plateau), W Cameroon and Bioko.
