J. F. Gmelin, 1789,
Conventionally considered conspecific with P. boodang, and until recently with P. pusilla, but recently shown to be most closely related to distinctive P. goodenovii#R. Differs from P. pusilla in its (from limited available material) much larger size (significantly longer bill, wing and tail; also not sexually dimorphic in size) (allow 3); larger white forehead patch in male (1); and (from limited available recordings) much lower-pitched and differently structured song (allow 3); further research, involving comprehensive review of evidence, needed to confirm this diagnosis. Monotypic.
