Ripley and Rabor, 1955,
Pula, Mt Canlaon, Negros, Philippines.
Affinities unknown. It has been suggested that the single specimen represents a runt or aberrant individual of Ramphiculus occipitalis; but a second bird, thought to be the mate of the type, was shot at the time of collection (body lost in undergrowth)#R#R, which may perhaps offer some support for the validity of the taxon; photographs, description and discussion of type specimen are available#R. Monotypic.
Known only from Mt Canlaon, in NC Negros (C Philippines).
