G. R. Gray, 1871,
forests east of Ambatondrazaka (Lake Alaotra), Madagascar.
See M. imerina. Trend to include M. erythronotus as a race of present species resisted here. The form bensoni, treated as a species in HBW but subsequently claimed to be so genetically undifferentiated as to be a synonym of present species#R#R, is distinctly paler and song scratchier#R, hence retained here as a subspecies. Proposed races salomonseni, interioris and tsaratananae, from C & S parts of range, appear untenable. Two subspecies recognized.
Unknown race in WC Madagascar#R.
