Until recently considered conspecific with T. paradisi, T. incei and T. affinis, but molecular study#R suggests otherwise. Differs from T. incei in characters given under that species. From T. affinis in its longer and broader crest (at least 1); longer, more graduated tail in female (2); lack of red morph in male (1); whiter (unmarked) mantle and more extensive white in primaries in male (2); paler upperparts (cinnamon vs rufous) in female (1). From T. paradisi in its shorter crest (2); smaller bill (allow 2); longer tail in female (at least 2); and buff vs white vent (2). Two subspecies currently recognized.
