Schmidt and Angehr, 2008,
N’dodo Lagoon, Moukalaba-Doudou National Park, Ogooué-Maritime Province, Gabon.
Has been lumped as a race of S. erythrothorax#R, but differs from that species (as here defined) by its mid-grey vs blackish submoustachial area and lower ear-coverts (2); strong olive-green vs olive-brown or olive-grey crown to rump (3); bright vs dull orange throat and breast with much less abrupt lower border (2); creamy vs white belly (ns); and female more weakly coloured than male, unlike in any other Stiphrornis taxa (ns). It differs from S. xanthogaster (as here defined) by same first two characters above (2+3); and female more weakly coloured than male (2); moreover, evidently sympatric#R (perceived differences in voice need checking to eliminate individual variation). Monotypic.
Gamba forest complex in coastal Gabon S of R Ogooué; possibly also in Lopé National Park (farther inland), Makokou area#R (NE Gabon) and Kouilou (S Congo).
