G. R. Gray, 1858,
Previously placed in monotypic genus Rhamphomantis, but genetic data group it with members of present genus#R; has alternatively been included in Chrysococcyx. Proposed race sanfordi (Waigeo) known only from one female specimen, apparently similar to others on mainland New Guinea; juvenile and subadult plumages of this species have only recently begun to be understood, and race sanfordi probably best rejected meantime. Monotypic.
W Papuan Is (Waigeo, Misool), Aru Is and New Guinea (Vogelkop and interior of N coast E to Kumusi R; also upper Fly R and Port Moresby area).
