A tiny brown flycatcher with an orange throat, a conspicuous orange mark between bill and eyes, a chestnut tail, and a white belly. Inhabits dense understory of montane forest within its small range in southwest Sulawesi. Differs from female Snowy-browed Flycatcher in its chestnut tail and brighter, clean-cut throat patch. Separated from female Rufous-throated Flycatcher by brown head and nape and larger orange patch between bill and eye. Song comprises several high-pitched whistles, “too-tee-too”, sometimes interspersed with or followed by a short rattle. Also gives dry, rattling “chep” calls.
