E. J. O. Hartert, 1903,
Hitherto treated as conspecific with M. chloroptera, but differs in its grey vs red breast (3); entirely whitish-grey lower underparts and wing fringes with no trace of olive-yellow wash (1); slightly smaller size (effect size for male bills –1.28; score 1); and clearly higher-pitched (2) and slightly longer (1) call (although sample size very small). Monotypic.
Bacan, off SW Halmahera.
