In past placed in an expanded Otus, but distinctiveness in plumage and size led to subsequent treatment in monotypic Mimizuku; recent molecular study, however, indicates that it is embedded within genus Otus and closely related to O. semitorques ussuriensis#R#R. Recent discovery of presence on Samar raises possibility of subspecific differentiation there#R. Monotypic.
EC & S Philippines: Samar, Dinagat, Siargao and Mindanao; report of former presence on Marinduque not confirmed#R.
