Cinnyris mediocris moreaui
W. L. Sclater, 1933,
Maskati, Nguru Range, Tanzania.
Closely related to C. loveridgei. In the past suspected of being a hybrid between that species and C. mediocris; that possibility, however, not borne out by DNA analyses, which strongly indicate its validity as a full species. Forms very narrow hybrid zone with C. fuelleborni, with further intergradation prevented by divergent songs#RMonotypic.
Mountains of E Tanzania (Nguu, Nguru, Uvidunda, Ukaguru and Udzungwa).
