Phylloscopus davisoni intensior
Khao Kuap [12°25’ N 102°50’ E], near Thailand–Cambodia border.
Until recently considered conspecific with P. ogilviegranti, and together this complex was treated as “P. davisoni”; with merging of Phylloscopus and Seicercus, however, name davisoni became preoccupied and was replaced by new name muleyitensis#R. On basis of molecular work#R#R, race muleyitensis [= davisoni] was split off from all other members of this complex#R; but vocal analysis now groups intensior not with ogilviegranti but with muleyitensis, name intensior having priority for present species. Song is typically a rising or falling phrase repeated 2–3 times vs a warbled phrase 1.5 s long lacking a repetitive pattern in all races of P. ogilviegranti; repeated phrases and shortest length of repeated phrase yield scores of 2+3 (5)#R; present species differs further from P. o. klossi in its reduced yellow below (1) and more white in tail (1); and from P. o. ogilviegranti and P. o. disturbans in having considerably more white in tail (2). Two subspecies recognized.
