SPECIES INFO

The Rufous Flycatcher-thrush (Neocossyphus fraseri or Stizorhina fraseri) is a species of bird in the thrush family. It is found in Angola, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Republic of the Congo, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Guinea, Nigeria, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests.

Finsch's Flycatcher-thrush is often considered conspecific with it (BirdLife International 2004). However, Finsch's Flycatcher-thrush is treated here as a separate species following the Handbook of the Birds of the World (del Hoyo et al. 2005). Also, the flycatcher-thrushes are sometimes placed in a separate genus, Stizorhina (BirdLife International 2004), but here they are placed in Neocossyphus, again following del Hoyo et al. (2005).
