New observations of a Zaïrean endemic: Prigogine's Greenbul

p 109-110

Between 1993-1994, Marc Languy, Laurent Esselen and the author were resident in Goma, eastern Zaire (now Democratic Republic of Congo). Situated in the centre of the Albertine Rift, this base provided an excellent opportunity to visit many sites within the Rift. During 6-8 February 1994, we visited the Lendu Plateau, an isolated highland region, west of Lake Albert (formerly Lake Mobutu) with the specific objective of observing two poorly known species, Chapin's (White-browed) Crombec Sylvietta (leucophrys) chapini and Prigogine's Greenbul Chlorocichla prigoginei, although the former may prove to be a form of White-browed Crombec Sylvietta leucophrys; further field investigation is needed before accepting this form as a valid species.
