Small flycatcher restricted to mountains in southeastern Venezuela and adjacent parts of Brazil and Guyana. Plumage is olive with tawny on the breast and lower underparts. Formerly considered a subspecies of the very similar McConnell's Flycatcher, but it sounds different and is found at higher elevations. Separated from Ochre-bellied Flycatcher by lack of wingbars and different voice. Stays fairly low in humid forest, and sometimes joins mixed species flocks. Males loosely congregate in display areas where they sing a short, falling then rising metallic trill. Also gives chaotic bursts of modulated notes as well as sharp chips.
