Phylloscopus trivirgatus misoriensis
Until recently considered conspecific with P. poliocephalus (and P. maforensis), but assembled evidence of differentiation includes dark olive-green upperparts (duller on head), two indistinct yellowish wingbars, yellow cheeks and throat, olive-green remaining underparts (yellower on centre, greyer on flanks), yellowish bill and legs, unspecified but “very different” behaviour, and much higher-pitched song#R; relevant material not seen in this review and use of scoring system adopted here therefore unfeasible, but cumulative weight of characters persuasive. Monotypic.
Biak I, in Geelvink Bay (NW New Guinea).
