Rhinomyias brunneatus

Brown-chested jungle flycatcher

The brown-chested jungle flycatcher (Cyornis brunneatus) is a species of bird in the Old World flycatcher family Muscicapidae. It is found in Brunei, China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and Tibet. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical mangrove forests. It is threatened by habitat loss.

This species was previously placed in the genus Rhinomyias but was moved to Cyornis based on the results of a 2010 molecular phylogenetic study.[2][3]
