Granatellus pelzelni paraensis
[Santo Antonio do] Prata, near Pará, Brazil.
Hitherto treated as conspecific with G. pelzelni, but differs in its grey vs black mid-crown and ear-coverts (2); lack of white flanks (pink extending further onto them or perhaps more grey extending out from inner flanks) (2); distinctive song, a variable, rather rhythmic phrase alternating one or more mellow low-pitched down-slurred whistles and harsher short high-pitched notes, vs a series of repeated rather similar notes, sometimes ending with a different trilled part or two series of repeated notes, to be scored as fewer repeated notes (2), shorter song phrases (ns), different note shapes (ns) and mellow notes having a much narrower frequency range (2); and possible absence (not yet recorded) of the typical “jrt” call of G. pelzelni (ns)#R. Monotypic.
