Antigua, Panay, Philippines.
Molecular data indicate that this species is closest to C. grillii and C. bengalensis#R#R. Although races form two groups of different-sized taxa and two groups with different wing colour, sizes do not correlate with wing colour, and the geographical pattern appears to make little sense: the two large forms are in far N of Philippines, carpenteri, with black wing, and major, with rufous wing; farther S, small nominate viridis is rufous-winged, and smallish mindorensis has black wing. Four subspecies recognized.
