West African Boubou [incl. ambiguus, limpopoensis, mossambicus]

Laniarius major [incl. ambiguus, limpopoensis, mossambicus] (= Laniarius major) (Hartlaub, 1848)

The Tropical Boubou or Bell Shrike (Laniarius aethiopicus) is a medium-sized passerine bird of sub-Saharan Africa. This very diverse "species" with its numerous subspecies and morphs has since long posed a taxonomic problem, and recent research suggests it is a cryptic species complex that ought to be split into several species.
