Emendation of original species name to cirrhocephalus not justified. Traditionally thought to be closely related to A. erythrauchen, and these two generally considered to form a species-group with A. brachyurus and possibly A. rhodogaster. Recent phylogenetic analyses, however, suggested possible close relationship of present species with A. gularis and A. virgatus#R. Birds of N Australia sometimes recognized as race quaesitandus, but regarded as doubtfully valid. Three subspecies normally recognized.
