J. A. Allen, 1890,
Andros Island, Bahamas.
Often treated as conspecific with I. melanopsis, I. dominicensis and I. portoricensis, but morphological and behavioural studies suggest that all of these merit species rank. Present species closely related to I. melanopsis, and sequence divergence in mitochondrial DNA between them slight (0.7%), but differs in plumage and is more clearly sexually dichromatic, whereas I. dominicensis and I. portoricensis are not especially close genetically either to each other or the other two species#R. Monotypic.
