Lulu's tody-tyrant

The Lulu's tody-tyrant is classified as Vulnerable (VU), considered to be facing a high risk of extinction in the wild.

known as Lulu's Tody-Tyrant, but following the death of Ned K. Johnson, one of the people responsible for the description of this species in 2001, the name was modified to Johnson's Tody-Tyrant by the SACC. Following the move of this species to the genus Poecilotriccus from Todirostrum, it was recommended modifying the name to Tody-Flycatcher. It is endemic to humid thickets, usually near bamboo, in the highlands of Amazonas and San Martín in northern Peru. More

publication, the next use of the name Lulu's Tody-Tyrant was in Clemments & Shany's "Birds of Peru". This was published before the Howard & Moore update of the birds of the world. Seems silly to change a name coined by the discoverer and hence used by 1000s of birders visiting Peru with Clemments&Shany's Birds of Peru. Also Lulu's TT is very cute and sexy. More
