- Mionectes macconnelli
Includes: Tepui Flycatcher
Four subspecies are recognized:
- M. m. macconnelli
- eastern Venezuela east to the Guianas and northeastern Brazil, north of the Amazon; it is not clear whether populations of central eastern Brazil south of the Amazon refer to amazonas (as these historically have been identified), or to the geographically adjacent nominate macconnelli
- M. m. peruanus
- central and southeastern Peru, adjacent southwestern Brazil
- M. m. amazonus
- Bolivia; it is not clear whether populations of central eastern Brazil south of the Amazon refer to amazonas (as these historically have been identified), or to the geographically adjacent nominate macconnelli of the Guianan region
- M. m. roraimae
- Tepuis of s Venezuela and Guyana
Gill and Donsker now split roraimae as Tepui Flycatcher.
McConnell's Flycatcher have in the past been placed in genus Pipromorpha.
Mostly lowland forest, but roraimae found higher, 700-2000 meters above sea level.
Displaying males assemble in leks. Size of leks and song given vary with roraimae different from the others.
