Races may represent two species, differing in plumage. Geographical variation rather complex and not fully understood; races intergrade extensively where they meet, e.g. nominate intergrading with melanops over very wide area across SW of species’ range; further study needed. EC Queensland population was previously listed as dealbatus, a replacement name for hypoleucus (itself a new name for albiventris, preoccupied), as type specimen of hypoleucus is from an intergrade population; however, dealbatus subsequently shown to be a junior synonym of inkermani#R. Five subspecies currently recognized.
