Yahya bin Saeed al Qatan is one of the scholars of Jarh o Tadeel in Ahlusunnah. Dhabi introduced him in these words in Sair Aalaam Nabala

يحيى القطان (ع) 


يحيى بن سعيد بن فروخ ، الإمام الكبير ، أمير المؤمنين في الحديث

Yahya al Qatan, Grand Imam, Amir ul Momineen in Hadeeth

Ali bin Madaini writes for him

وقال علي بن المديني : ما رأيت أحدا أعلم بالرجال من يحيى بن سعيد .

Ali bin Madaini said: I have never seen anyone more knowledgeable than Yahya bin Saeed

Now, There is a narrator named Hamam bin Yahya bin Dinar. He was a narrator of Sihah. Dhabi introduced him in Sair Aalaam Nabala

همام بن يحيى (ع) ابن دينار ، الإمام الحافظ الصدوق الحجة أبو بكر

Hamam bin Yahya bin Dinar, Imam, Hafiz, truthful, Hujjat

Yahya bin Saeed criticized his narrations, as has been mentioned by Ibn Hajar


قال عمر بن شبة عن عفان كان يحيى بن سعيد يعترض على همام في كثير من حديثه

Afan said that Yahya bin Saeed criticized Hamam in a lot of narrations

He also wrote

وقال ابن أبي خيثمة قال عبد الرحمن بن مهدي ظلم يحيى بن سعيد همام بن يحيى لم يكن له به علم ولا مجالسة.

Abdur Rehman bin Mahdi said that Yahya bin Saeed did injustice to Hamam bin Dinar in that He did not take knowledge from him or attend his gatherings

Ibn Hajar further mentions the reason for this, and writes


وقال ابن عدي أخبرني إسحاق بن يوسف أظنه عن عبد الله بن أحمد عن أبيه قال شهد يحيى بن سعيد في حداثته شهادة فلم يعدله همام فنقم عليه

Ahmad bin Hanbal said that Yahya had testified once in his youth, which was not accepted by Hamam, so Yahya denied/rejected him 

[Tehzeeb ut Tehzeeb, 11/61]

Great reason for rejecting a Thiqa Narrator………………………..
