Formerly considered a race of B. capensis or, more often, of B. mixta; has some characteristics of both, and recent genetic study places it within latter#R. Contrary to some published statements, however, there is no acoustic evidence for its inclusion in either, and in morphological terms it differs from mixta (in females) in its grey to olive-tinged grey vs deep ochreish-brown mantle to rump (3); white throat and submoustachial area and grey breastband vs tawny-rufous throat, submoustachial area and breastband (4); male iris colour may also be paler#R. Monotypic.
SE Tanzania in Mikindani and Lindi area, possibly also farther N, near R Rufiji; presumably also in adjacent NE Mozambique#R.
