Moved
Moved from Tytthonyx. Must be this species, I suppose. Of the five N.A. species, one is in Arizona and two seem to be only known from Florida. Of the remaining two, this doesn't look like Mike's T. ruficollis, so by process of elimination I conclude this is probably T. erythrocephala. Specimen will be kept as a photo-voucher, thanks Johnny.
