Santa Isabel, Solomon Islands.
Close to A. dichroa and in the past regarded as conspecific, but differs in size, morphology and plumage. Race malaitae may constitute a separate species, differing in its smaller size (effect size for tail −1.85 vs nominate, score 1); white (or very pale blue) iris (3); and apparently different voice (no “erikk-pop” call)#R; but supposedly distinct green gloss and shorter neck hackles (in original description and HBW diagnosis) difficult to detect; further study required. Three subspecies recognized.
