Puerto Princesa, Palawan.
Until recently was considered conspecific with D. javanense, but differs in its virtually plain brown upper breast (2); greatly reduced white postocular supercilium (owing to broader black postocular eyestripe with red of crown extending more onto head side) (2); (in female) matt-black crown with red nape vs glossy black crown with bold white spotting (3); underparts mottled more than scaled (ns); central throat and chin lightly peppered black vs white with black streaky mesial line (ns); (in male) reddish stain vs none in black submoustachial area#R (ns). Recent molecular analyses provided “some support” for this split#R. Monotypic.
