  1. Named after Al Gentry, one of the great neotropical botanists, who died in the same plane crash as Ted Parker. May he rest in peace. Posted 5 days ago

The ancient antwren is a species of tropical bird in the family Thamnophilidae. It is primarily found in "terra firme" forests of northern Peru and southeastern Ecuador. This species was described in 1998 and named after the American botanist Alwyn Gentry. Habitat loss poses the greatest threat to this species.
