Abstract
This paper contains a maximum-likelihood tree from an analysis of the ND2 gene depicting evolutionary relationships among the 33 species (particularly antbirds) used in acoustic analysis.

Euchrepomidinae: Euchrepomis

Bravo, Remsen, Whitney & Brumfield (in press). DNA sequence data reveal a previously unsuspected subfamily-level divergence within Thamnophilidae (Aves: Passeriformes). Mol Phylogenet Evol. [abstract]
Etymology. Feminine generic name derived from the Greek euchrôs (ruddy, bright-colored) and epômis (point of the shoulder). This refers to the bright yellow or bright orange-rufous coloration of the lesser secondary coverts of males; a character that, within Thamnophilidae, is unique to the members of the genus.

Have only seen abstract. Can anyone advise which of Euchrepomis callinota, E. humeralis, E. spodioptila and E. sharpei is the type species?

Phylogeny
The phylogenetic analyses based on maximum-likelihood and Bayesian methods yielded identical, highly supported topologies (Figure S.1). This topology corroborates previous results that Myrmotherula is not monophyletic (Hackett and Rosenberg 1990; Isler et al. 2006; Bravo et al. 2012a; Belmonte-Lopes et al. 2012), with members of the genus placed in four distantly related clades (Myrmotherula sensu stricto, Epinecrophylla, Isleria, and Rhopias; Fig. 2). Myrmotherula sensu stricto itself is also paraphyletic with respect to the genera Terenura, Formicivora, Stymphalornis, and Myrmochanes. Taxonomic implications within Myrmotherula sensu strictu will be discussed and published elsewhere (Bravo et al. in prep).

..“There are five more new species that we are describing now within the family Thamnophilidae,”...
[/URL]

I take that to be five new species over and above those in the HBW special volume? I guess these will be five more interfluvial forms which SACC won't like very much and will look the same as adjacent forms. But that's me with my glass half empty again! Maybe we will get a new Rhegmatorhina - haha ;)

cheers, alan

Given the authors and their past publications, the supposed new species are more likely to be consistent with currently accepted species limits than some new taxa in the HBW volume. Of course, this is a research group including some SACC committee members and with close links to others, whose work the SACC tends to endorse ...
