Eydoux and Gervais, 1836,
Maroantsetra, north-eastern Madagascar.
Hitherto treated as conspecific with C. pica. Birds from around Ihosy described as race winterbottomi, male with all-black tail, female with extensive white spots on outer three rectrices and white outer webs of two longest secondaries; included within inexspectatus in HBW, but later considered either a race of C. pica or more probably a hybrid between C. pica and race inexspectatus#R. Race inexspectatus (misspelt in HBW) may itself be a white-bellied morph of nominate#R. Two subspecies recognized.
