Cyanops oorti annamensis
Robinson and Kloss, 1919,
Dalat, 5000 feet [c. 1525 m], Annam.
Until recently treated as conspecific with P. nuchalis, P. faber and P. oorti, but differs from all three in its longer wing and shorter tail (effect sizes score this 1+1=2); pale yellow crown and throat (score 2); bill with more extensive grey horn below at base, although quite variable and some bills are as black as in other taxa (1); song slightly higher-pitched and with more “tail-notes” to each repeated call or strophe, so that spectrographically it appears more or less continuous (2). Split initially discounted#R in the absence of vocal evidence, but supported on molecular grounds#R#R. Monotypic.
E Laos, Vietnam and E Cambodia.
