E. J. O. Hartert, 1904,
Previously included in P. pectoralis (see that species). Separable from others in the complex by a combination of “hen-feathered” male plumage, vague pale lores and supercilium, and large bill (much larger than seemingly similar and genetically close#R P. orpheus); treated as conspecific with P. orpheus by some recent authors#R. Name par has precedence over simultaneously described compar because former was described as a species, latter as a subspecies (of former). Two subspecies recognized.
