Taxonomic Split 120850 (Committed on 24-01-2023)

Bran-colored Flycatcher is split into three species, on the basis of plumage differences, parapatric distributions with no evidence of interbreeding (crypterythrus and rufescens), and vocal differences (Boesman 2016l, Kirwan et al. 2022). As a result, the polytypic group Bran-colored Flycatcher (Bran-colored) Myiophobus fasciatus [fasciatus Group], with subspecies furfurosus, fasciatus, saturatus, auriceps, and flammiceps, retains the names Bran-colored Flycatcher Myiophobus fasciatus; the monotypic group Bran-colored Flycatcher (Mouse-gray) Myiophobus fasciatus crypterythrus becomes Mouse-gray Flycatcher Myiophobus crypterythrus; and the monotypic group Bran-colored Flycatcher (Rufescent) Myiophobus fasciatus rufescens becomes Rufescent Flycatcher Myiophobus rufescens. Revise the range of Mouse-gray Flycatcher from "Tropical sw Colombia to w Ecuador and extreme nw Peru" to "west of the Andes in southwestern Colombia, western Ecuador, and northwestern Peru (south to southern Lambayeque and southwestern Cajamarca)".
