P. L. Sclater, 1877,
Duke of York Island.
Sometimes (with next species) placed in genus Uralcyon. Usually treated as conspecific with T. sylvia, but differs on account of black (not blue) crown (3); black (not blue) scapulars (3); much paler, yellower underparts in nigriceps, although only slightly so in leucura (ns); and differently structured tail (in sylvia and salvadoriana, most feathers half-length of narrow streamers; in leucura and nigriceps, most feathers two-thirds the length of broader streamers) (visually 3). Two subspecies recognized.
