Hitherto treated as conspecific with T. ochraceiceps, its vocal distinctiveness unrecognized; differs in its olive crown with dull buffy-yellowish or sometimes rust-tinged forehead vs strongly rufous-washed crown throughout (2); and song, a repeated phrase of two slightly descending whistles, the second lower and longer than the first, vs a repeated drawn-out single whistle, rather flat in pitch, slightly ascending or descending, hence that of present taxon differing in structure, greater length (3) and frequency range (2)#R. Monotypic.
