New aethopyga sunbirds (Aves: Nectariniidae) from the island of Mindanao, Philippines
We describe a new species of sunbird, Aethopyga linaraborae, known from Mt. Mayo, Mt. Puting Bato, and Mr. Pasian, all part of an isolated range of mountains in eastern Mindanao, Philippines. It occurs commonly in mossy forest from about 1,200 m and above. We also describe a new subspecies of Apo Sunbird, Aethopyga boltoni tibolii, known from Mt. Busa and Mt. Matutum of southern Mindanao, where it is found in mossy forest above 1,000 m.
