(syn. Dicrurus Ϯ Andaman Drongo D. andamanensis dicruriformis) Genus Dissemurus Gloger, 1841, drongo; Gr. -οιδης -oidēs  resembling; "Dissemuroides, Gen. Nov.  Bill resembling that of Dissemurus; rictal bristles, feebler; no crest; a tuft of hair like feathers on the forehead, springing from each side of the base of culmen; tail much as in Buchanga albirictus, Hodg., and longicaudatus, Hay, but longer, and the exterior feathers more than proportionally elongated, with the tips curved over towards the centre of the tail, as in Chibia hottentotta.  ...  I have therefore separated these two birds* under the above generic name, and give the following species as the type: Dissemuroides dicruriformis, Sp. Nov.   ...   * D. lophorinus Vieill would also apparently be included in this genus." (Hume 1873).
