J. F. Gmelin, 1789,
Previously treated as conspecific with P. pectoralis (see page 268). Alternatively, sometimes considered to include races vanikorensis, intacta, chlorura, cucullata and littayei of P. pectoralis, but present species differs from these in its grey vs black hood (3); much narrower breastband (1); orange wash on breast (2); and slenderer bill (at least 1). Monotypic.
