Looks to be ugiensis though not listed as this taxon for here, only cited for Ugi. A very distinct form, I am surprised this was not picked up as a split.

All of the 943 species known to occur are covered, including the extraordinarily high total of 456 endemics, as well as 5 introduced species, 2 species yet to be formally described and a separate appendix with 75 vagrants. Subspecies are listed also to give a comprehensive overview of the remarkable regional avifauna.
