Bourns and Worcester, 1894,
interior of Negros, Philippine Islands.
Usually considered conspecific with P. amethystinus, but, following a recent review#R and further assessment, it is here treated as a distinct species on account of its pale grey vs greyish-tinged purplish-brown underparts (malar area spreading to breast including breast sides and belly) (3); more whitish vs pale rufous chin and undertail-coverts (1); breast marked with darkish grey bars (1); and on average larger size, most notably in tail length (effect size 2.3) (2). Monotypic.
