Monarcha (Piezorhynchus) browni
E. P. Ramsay, 1883,
New Georgia, Solomon Islands.
Race nigrotectus notably distinctive, lacking the white wingpanel (3) and apparently with more white in tail than other taxa (at least 1); information on voice needed. Taxon ganongae, placed with nigrotectus, is morphologically intermediate, but genetic data#R show it to be closer to nigrotectus and, furthermore, suggest that these two may together be distinct at species level. Four subspecies currently recognized.
