F. Moore, 1854,
Has been treated as race of Hypsipetes madagascariensis (along with other Asian forms now grouped under H. leucocephalus and H. ganeesa). Detailed study required to clarify its true affinities with members of both genera. Originally named Ixocincla virescens but when species was placed in Hypsipetes that specific epithet was preoccupied; replaced before 1961, and so permanently invalid. Monotypic.
Nancowry island group (including Camorta, Trinkat, Nancowry, Katchall, Teressa, Bompoka and Tillanchong), in C Nicobar Is.
