A. O. Hume, 1873,
South Andaman Island.
Probably closest to O. alfredi and O. spilocephalus. Has been considered conspecific with African O. icterorhynchus on basis of morphology, but significant differences in plumage and vocal characters indicate that the two are better treated as separate species. Some authors have included Sumatran form “stresemanni” of O. spilocephalus (which see) as race of present species, or regarded the two species as close relatives. Monotypic.
