Most similar to Yellow-throated Flycatcher, but with white throat. Quite similar to the Rusty-Margined or Social Flycatcher. Called the White-ringed Flycatcher because the white band wraps around the back of the neck. Note lack of yellow crown seen on similar species, and lack of rufous in wings.

Lemon-browed Flycatcher
Lemon-browed Flycatcher (Conopias cinchoneti icterophrys) Vulnerable
Reserva Natural La Isla Escondida, Orito, Putumayo, Colombia  
   

Generally seen in the canopy in small groups, and often near oropendola nests

Yellow-throated Flycatcher (Conopias parvus)

  Similar to Lesser Kiskadee note yellow throat and possibly thicker longer brow.
