A. O. Hume, 1878,
Much confusion over nomenclature: species originally named maxima in 1876, but incorrectly; validated by same author in 1878; this emendation, however, was long overlooked, owing in part to lumping of these names within A. brevirostris innominatus, an older name; during this period name used for present species was lowi, while northern race was listed as robinsoni, as next available name. Despite the unlikely distribution pattern resulting, nominate race and lowi apparently co-occur and intergrade in W Java. Both A. vulcanorum and A. vanikorensis palawanensis have been placed in present species. Three subspecies recognized.
