Lopes L.E., Chaves A.V., Mendes de Aquino M., Silveira L.F. & dos Santos F.R., in press. The striking polyphyly of Suiriri: Convergent evolution and social mimicry in two cryptic Neotropical birds. J. Zool. Syst. Evol. Res.

Two species of Suiriri (Aves: Tyrannidae) inhabit semi-open habitats in South America: the polytypic Suiriri Flycatcher (S. suiriri) and the monotypic Chapada Flycatcher (S. affinis). The phylogenetic relationship between these congeneric species has never been investigated in detail. Here we used molecular tools—three nuclear introns and two mitochondrial genes—to investigate the systematic position of the Chapada Flycatcher, comparing the results found with morphological and behavioral data. We found that the polytypic Suiriri Flycatcher to be monophyletic and that it is included in a clade of Elaeniini flycatchers including Phyllomyias, Phaeomyias, and Capsiempis among other genera. The Chapada Flycatcher, on the other hand, is a member of the Fluvicolini, sister to Sublegatus, and should be allocated on its own monospecific genus, which we herein describe. We suggest that social mimicry is responsible for the remarkable convergence in size, shape, plumage coloration, and behavior in the adults of the Suiriri Flycatcher and the Chapada Flycatcher.

Is this journal still printed on paper? The website gives an ISSN for the online version only.
