Black-fronted White-eye [chrysolaemus]

Zosterops chrysolaemus Salvadori, AT 1876

The black-fronted white-eye is a songbird species. It is closely related to the Old World babblers, and its family Zosteropidae might better be included in the Tiimalidae. The black-fronted white-eye was formerly considered a subspecies of the green-fronted white-eye,, and until it was split as a distinct species, the name "black-fronted white-eye" was also used for Z. minor.
