Eurostopodus mystacalis exul
Tao, New Caledonia.
Until recently considered conspecific with E. mystacalis and E. nigripennis but differs from the latter in its notably short wing (at least 2), much stonier-white upperparts (3), clearer, broader and more unified black on central crown (at least 1), and minimal rufous hindcollar (although some nigripennis show relatively little rufous) (1); but known only from a single specimen. Monotypic.
