E. Burton, 1836,
Sometimes considered part of a species-group centred on G. passerinum (which see). Pale island form pardalotum distinctive, and sylvaticum said to be vocally distinctive#R; have been suggested as possibly representing two additional species#R, but, conversely, sylvaticum and borneense regarded by some authors as not meriting even subspecific recognition#R, though both are very poorly known#R. Proposed race garoense (from W Meghalaya, in NE India) included in nominate. Name peritum is a synonym of sylvaticum. Four subspecies recognized.
