Females are dull yellow-olive with a slightly brighter yellow belly. Compared to other female manakins, females of this species have a white eye and are more yellow, with a yellower belly. Found in the understory of mature rainforest, as well as in bamboo. Listen for the male’s song, a descending “teew” whistle.
