Ornismyia [sic] mulsant
Frequently placed in genus Acestrura along with C. bombus, C. heliodor, C. astreans and C. berlepschi, but no evidence in external morphology justifies treatment in a genus separate from C. jourdanii. Specific name sometimes misspelt mulsanti; both names published by same author just weeks apart; present name has priority#R. Described form Calothorax decoratus is probably a hybrid between present species and Chaetocercus heliodor. Monotypic.
C & E Andes of Colombia patchily through Ecuador and Peru to C Bolivia (Yungas of Cochabamba).
