Arfak Mountains, New Guinea.
Previously considered conspecific with M. albonotatus. Validity of some races, e.g. margaretae, questionable; indeed, “lack of objective diagnostic characters” prompted some recent authors#R to include all except steini within nominate. Birds of this species in Van Rees Mts and Foja Mts of uncertain racial identity, provisionally included in sepik. Seven subspecies tentatively recognized.
