Mount Dulit, Borneo.
Closely related to P. australis, the two (and forms previously included in P. australis) comprising the so-called Mesobucco group. Racial separation of Mt Kinabalu population uncertain, based principally on blue throat colour, but this may be indicative of subadult, and more or less matched by probable subadult specimens from elsewhere in species’ range, where also some with mostly blue or mixed throat colour; also, individuals have been seen on Mt Kinabalu with black throat, as adults in rest of range; further research required. Two subspecies tentatively recognized.
