Jardine and Selby, 1833,
uncertain, possibly India = Malacca.
Until recently considered conspecific with A. bres and A. frater, but differs from latter in characters given under that species. Differs from former in its grey vs brown ear-coverts (2); dirtier white and less sharply demarcated throat (2); dirty pale vs strong yellow breast and belly (2); cinnamon vs yellow undertail-coverts (ns); browner, less green, upperparts (ns); divergent call notes (sample size very small, but at least 1). Further, differences in song reported#R. Taxon gutturalis suggested as possibly a separate species, with fairly distinct mtDNA haplotype and striking differences in plumage#R; investigation required. Two subspecies recognized.
