Thayet, south-central Myanmar.
Until recently considered conspecific with P. erythropygius, although very distinct. Characters determining its elevation to species rank#R include white forehead, supercilium, head sides and throat in male (4); weaker, paler orange breast in male, no specimen showing frequent rosy tinge of erythropygius (1); more extensive white half-collar in female, creating semi-capped appearance (1); and longer bill (effect size 2.37, score 2). In addition, voices may be very distinct but sample sizes far too small to be certain. Monotypic.
