I have examined carefully the paper by Weir,Bermingham,Miller,Klicka &
Gonsález,2008, Phylogeography of a morphologically diverse Neotropical
montane species, the Common Bush-Tanager (Chlorospingus ophthalmicus)
Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution,47: 650?664.
I think that they prove beyond any doubt that the Common Bush-Tanger should
be broken up into 8 species.
I treid to send an email to both birdchcat and neoorn containing the
relevents Figures inserted as jpegs, but both emails were rejected because
I one would like to see the 2 Figures, email me and I'll send them to you
Meanwhile, go to my website and enter Chlorospingus as the search term.
Don't forget to click on citations for each of the splits because its there
you will find the explanations.
Briefly, the new analysis is a follows:
Chlorospingus ophthalmicus (monotypic)
Chlorospingus punctulatus (including regionalis and novicius)
Chlorospingus postocularis(including honduratius)
Chlorospingus flavopectus (including
uelanus, peruvianus,fulvigularis,bolivianus and argentinus)
Go to my website http://www.worldbirdinfo.net
And don't forget to tlcik on citations to get the evidence.
