Until recently considered conspecific with F. carunculatus and F. procerior, but differs from former in characters given under that species. Differs from latter in its smaller size (small sample but evidence strong; allow 2); much narrower basal black on moustachial wattle (2); longer, much more exposed distal wattle (2); and narrower black malar line adjoining lower edge of wattle (1). No clear vocal differences#R. Split supported by molecular evidence#R. Monotypic.
