Dark, medium-sized flycatcher of the Andes from Venezuela to Peru. Almost all chocolate-brown with slightly paler eyebrow and wingbars, and conspicuous cinnamon underwings in flight. Sexes similar. Compare with Streak-throated Bush-Tyrant, which has an orangish belly and streaked throat. Most often found singly in middle to upper levels of forest and edge from around 2,000–3,400 m. Sometimes perches conspicuously.
