Ryukyu Flycatcher

See kantori for a discussion in recent days about possible geographical races of Ryukyu Flycatcher Ficedula (narcissina) owstoni.

Des Allen noted that three subspecies were formerly recognised...
Quote:
HI all,
Historically these subspecies were split. Peters checklist XI p339 (Biodiversity Heritage Library):

Ficedula narcissina owstoni (Bangs)
Zanthopygia owstoni Bangs, 1901, Bull. Mus. Comp. Zool., 36, p. 265—Ishigaki, southern Ryukyu Islands.
Muscicapa narcissina jakuschima Hartert, 1907, Vögel Pal. Fauna, 1, p. 491—Yaku Shima, northern Ryukyu Islands.
Zanthopygia narcissina shonis Kuroda, 1923, Bull. Brit. Ornith. Club, 43, p. 107—Komi, Amami-Oshima, middle Ryukyu Islands.
Ryukyu Islands: Tanega-shima, Yaku-shima, Amami-o-shima, Ishigaki, Iriomote.

So at some stage sspp shonis and jakuschima were submerged within owstoni.

Vaurie (1959) wrote “the forms jakuschima and shonis represent intermediate stages on the cline but are not well differentiated as about half of the specimens examined are not distinguishable” and included them in owstoni.

Ficedula narcissina complex

Molecular phylogeny and systematic revision of the Ficedula narcissina complex.

L. Dong, X. Huang, M. Wei, P. Alström, U. Olsson and Y.Y. Zhang

The taxonomy of Ficedula narcissina complex, endemic in East Asia, is highly debated because of the bewildering similarity of the taxon in morphological and acoustic characters. Three designated species are broadly accepted at present, which include Ficedula zanthopygia, F. narcissina (consisting of two subspecies, F. n. narcissina and F. n. owstoni) and F. elisae. Here, we provide the first molecular phylogenetic revision for these taxa in combination with a morphological and sonagraphic analysis. Reconstructed using three mitochondrial genes and three nuclear markers (in total 3,541 bp), both the gene and species trees corroborated the recently suggested splitting of F. elisae from F. narcissina, and an exclusive monophyly of the four operational taxonomic units. The corrected genetic distance of the bar-coding gene (COI) between F. n. narcissina and F. n. owstoni was 2.8%, which indicated a similar degree of divergence with the sister species F. albicollis and F. hypoleuca (2.2%). All taxa within the complex can be distinguished by several spectral and structural song parameters, and a discriminant analysis also indicated significant morphological differences. Our comprehensive systematic revision thus confirmed that F. elisae deserves the species status, and moreover suggested that the two subspecies in F. narcissina should also be considered two diagnosable species.

[pdf]

Abstract:
Quote:
Determining the mechanisms responsible for the distribution of genetic diversity in natural populations has occupied a central role in molecular evolution. Our study was motivated by the unprecedented observation that a widespread Eurasian flycatcher, Ficedula albicilla, exhibited no variation at the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) ND2 gene in 75 individuals sampled over a 5000-km distance. In contrast, its sister species, F. parva, had low but considerably higher levels of mtDNA variation. We assessed whether natural selection or demographic factors could explain the absence of mtDNA variation in F. albicilla. Eighteen nuclear genes were sequenced to estimate the two species’ phylogeographic histories, and for comparison to the mtDNA data. Multilocus coalescence analyses suggested that F. albicilla experienced a population expansion perhaps following a population bottleneck. Simulations based on this demographic history, however, did not replicate the extremely low level of mtDNA variation. Historical range changes based on ecological niche models also failed to explain the observed mtDNA patterns. Neutrality tests (DHEW and ML-HKA) suggested a non-neutral pattern in the mtDNA of F. albicilla. We found a transmembrane-skewed distribution of nonsynonymous substitutions between the two species, three of which caused functional change; the results implied that positive selection could have targeted mtDNA. Several lines of evidence support selection rather than demographic history as the main force influencing the patterns of mtDNA variation. Despite the influence of natural selection, many of the phylogeographic inferences derived from mtDNA were robust, including species limits and a high level of gene flow among populations within species.

A major paper on the identification of Atlas (Pied) Flycatcher Ficedula speculigera by Andrea Corso et al. is due to be published in the forthcoming issue of Dutch Birding.

The editor Arnoud B. van den Berg wrote:
Quote:
One of the conclusions of the paper is that both Atlas speculigera and Iberian Pied Flycatcher F h iberiae are so variable in morphology that they can only be identified with 100% certainty by a DNA sample or by call differences.
Many thanks to Arnoud and of course to Andrea and his colleagues.

p.s. although I received this in a internal email, I thought I would share this with you since it's already near the publication date. Also, for those of you who are not subscribers, it's time to subscribe to this great birding journal who do their best to serve the WP birding community. (I think many in this forum will agree with me in this).

As a result, Arnoud suggests to review and reject the field records of F h iberiae on the Moroccan list.

There is only one record of Iberian Pied Flycatcher in the Moroccan Rare Birds Committee Database: a bird at Touroug on 10 April 2010 (CHM16).
The sole accepted Moroccan record was submitted by van den Berg et al, but see also the ringing recoveries discussed in...

Of course, for Morocco, the fact is that observers could not be sure about positively ID iberiae, as you'll read in our paper they are identical or almost so in most plumages -(but not on call and DNA - NB: however, there are no taxonomical discussion on the paper, we did not deal with this issue, as then genetic should be done with wider samples and different multiple analisy)

BUT, of course, and for sure, iberiae pass across Morocco to reach Spainish breeding grounds... so it is surely regular in Morocco but simply could not be ID for sure when in the field as for iberiae(cinereocapilla wagtails for me

Indeed, Andrea. It doesn't take rocket science (or even ringing recoveries!) to deduce that Spanish-breeding migrant landbirds pass through Morocco.

Looking forward to your forthcoming papers - you've evidently been very busy recently.
