Great Nicobar Island.
Considered closely related to S. cheela, S. holospilus, S. kinabaluensis and S. rufipectus. Often considered conspecific with S. cheela; race minimus of latter often awarded full species status, in which case usually considered to include klossi as race (see S. cheela). Present species, however, is distinct in its very small size, comparatively short crest, and very pale plain underside lacking bars and streaks, as well as several other plumage features; also, is sympatric with undescribed race of S. cheela in S Nicobars#R. Monotypic.
Great Nicobar, in S Nicobar Is; recorded also on Little Nicobar and Menchal#R.
