The white-browed purpletuft (Iodopleura isabellae) is a small South American species of bird in the family Tityridae. It has traditionally been placed in the cotinga family, but evidence strongly suggest it is better placed in Tityridae,[2] where now placed by SACC. It is found in the canopy of the western and southern Amazon Rainforest.
