Neopelma aurifrons chrysolophum
O. M. O. Pinto, 1944,
no locality = Minas Gerais, Brazil.
Part of a complex that includes N. chrysocephalum, N. sulphureiventer, N. pallescens and N. aurifrons. Formerly treated as conspecific with N. aurifrons, but proves to be narrowly sympatric with it, and differs in its much larger coronal patch (2); much longer tail (small sample for both species but allow 2); shorter bill and wing (small sample but allow 2); and very different voice (more complex song, chip, chip, dree-zee-zee, zew, as against four-syllabled kiu-ki-chru-chrri)#R (3). Originally named Muscicapa luteocephala, but that name preoccupied. Monotypic.
Coastal SE Brazil from EC Minas Gerais and Rio de Janeiro S to extreme S São Paulo and probably also adjacent E Paraná.
