Moved from Physoconops bulbirostris.

I initially took the frons here to be "entirely dark"...which (mis)led me away from P. brachyrhynchus. But I believe I see intimations of lateral paleness there now...and a number of other clear characters in your 1st photo of the series point to P. brachyrhynchus.
