Island of Ramree, Arakan, west Myanmar.
In recent past, sometimes referred to as P. grisola, but type of grisola apparently lost, and this name is best treated as unidentifiable#R (HBW 12: 375). Often considered conspecific with P. albiventris and P. homeyeri, but differs significantly from both in plumage and habitat#R. Race plateni sometimes accorded species rank but plumage differences slight, and song falls well within range of variation of cinerea in terms of both basic parameters and song-phrase structure (despite differences perhaps implied in HBW). Proposed races vandepolli (Batu Is, off W Sumatra), butaloides (W Java) and secedens (S Natuna Is) merged with nominate. Two subspecies recognized.
