Some chatter about the new Chat

Stiphrornis pyrrholaemus

Schmidt et al. announced and characterised the new species in Zootaxa yesterday.

The genus formerly considered monotypic, occupied only by the Forest Robin (Stiphrornis erythrothorax) is now recognized to be shared with the Olive-backed Forest Robin of Gabon. The new species does not yet have his own Wikipedia entry, but he did make the list already!

Birdchick has posted more details.
