TiF Update July 30:
The Rio Negro Gnatcatcher, Polioptila facilis, and Para Gnatcatcher, Polioptila paraensis, are split from the Guianan Gnatcatcher, Polioptila guianensis. Also, the newly described Inambari Gantcatcher, Polioptila attenboroughi, is added to the list. See Whitney and Alonso (2005) and Whittaker et al. (2013). I also took the opportunity to rearrange the gnatcatchers a bit.

I wonder if Zimmer's confusion over variation in schistaceigula (Slate-throated Gnatcatcher) in his comment to the SACC proposal stems from not knowing the distinct differences between the sexes. They are claimed to be alike in most literature, but are now known to be different. I guess the very small number of museum specimens was the basis for this confusion.

The dark male with eyering http://www.pbase.com/ahlman/image/151251565 (Ecuador)
http://www.pbase.com/ahlman/image/151251567 (Ecuador)
The paler female with eyebrow http://www.pbase.com/ahlman/image/140351546 (Ecuador)
http://www.pbase.com/ahlman/image/151251572 (Ecuador, partner of male in earlier photos)
Pair http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_i61d7tcluC...atcatcher1.jpg (Panama)

The differences in darkness between the Ecuador and Panama birds is purely due to light and photo processing. The males and female don't vary much over their range.

The illustration in most field guides is the male, but Handbook of the Birds of the World has a female.
