islands in Geelvink Bay.
Hitherto considered conspecific with D. myristicivora, but differs on account of its lack of black knob on bill (3); lack of pale vinous wash on hindneck (2); yellow iris, based on photographic evidence (at least 2); darker grey head, breast and mantle, with dirtier, darker lower underparts (ns); greener-glossed vs bluer-glossed rump (inconstant character; entire upperparts of geelvinkiana tend to be more strongly green [ns]); smaller size (wing length effect size –1.636; score 1). Also closely related to D. rubricera; a close relationship with D. concinna has also been suggested. Monotypic.
