ID confidence and determination100%
seen well by guide, non-diagnostically by me; calling only and I have no comparative material, and the call seems extremely similar to Pnoepyga albiventer; however, I believe the guide's ID is correct as the bird responded strongly to playback of Pnoepyga immaculata, and the bird is well-known at this site
