F. J. Jackson, 1905,
Kibera River, Toro, Uganda.
Hitherto treated as conspecific with C. chloronota, but differs in its tawny-buff vs grey breast (3); more white on throat and belly (1); slightly browner, less olive upperparts (1); much longer tail (effect size 4.12, score 2); shorter bill (effect size –2.37, score 2); and much more varied vocabulary reflected in parameters such as pitch, pace, note length and note shape (at least 2)#R. It was once predicted that present species would intergrade with C. chloronota in the lower R Ubangi, DRCongo#R, and recent published maps (including HBW) show seemingly continuous range with C. chloronota; but apparently no evidence to date of contact. Two subspecies recognized.
