The genus Ochromela contains a single species of Flycatcher remarkable for its coloration.
In this genus the sexes are slightly dissimilar, though both preserve the characteristic black and orange plumage. The bill is blunt and thick, and the rictal bristles are numerous and very long; the wing is rounded, the first primary being longer than half the second; the tail is considerably rounded.
