Ptilonopus [sic] coronulatus
G. R. Gray, 1858,
Belongs to the large species-group centred on P. purpuratus (which see); traditionally linked with P. pulchellus and P. monacha. Pale-capped orange-bellied forms in NW & N and dark-capped purple-bellied races in S & NE may merit treatment as two distinct species#R; more study needed. Five subspecies recognized.
