Salvadori and D’Albertis, 1876,
#R Yule Island, New Guinea.
Until recently was considered conspecific with C. spilonotus, but differs on account of smaller size (1); polymorphic plumage, with a practically all-black morph and another with solidly black (instead of streaked) throat, both unreported for spilonotus (2); pale-morph spilothorax (closest to spilonotus) darker than spilonotus and with dark tips of flight-feathers, which are generally much paler and concolorous with rest of feather in spilonotus (2); pale-morph spilothorax has more densely streaked throat than spilonotus (1); sedentary behaviour (2). Further details available elsewhere#R. Monotypic.
