Caconda, Benguela, Angola.
Bears close resemblance to M. africana, but recent genetic study recovered this species as sister to M. rufocinnamomea#R. Races poorly differentiated; further research may lead to one or more being subsumed. Racial identity of birds recently observed in SW Tanzania uncertain, tentatively placed in marungensis. Proposed race minyanyae (NW Zambia) included in antonii; birds from S part of Angola (Cuando Cubango), described as race niethammeri, may be referable to M. fasciolata. Three subspecies recognized.
