Ogabi River, Gabon.
Previously placed in genus Spizaetus, and before that in Hieraaetus or, more often, in monotypic genus Cassinaetus. Recent molecular study, however, suggested that this species is closely related to several Aquila eagles (A. gurneyi, A. chrysaetos, A. audax, A. verreauxii, A. fasciata)#R; another phylogenetic study indicated that present species clustered with a group which includes A. gurneyi, A. audax and A. fasciata, though this relationship not strongly supported#R. Monotypic.
