Monachalcyon princeps regalis
Tanke Salokko, 2000 m, Mengkoka Mountains, south-eastern Sulawesi.
Hitherto considered conspecific with A. princeps, but (from evidence of only known two specimens) differs on account of black vs dark blue forecrown and “face” (malar area to ear-coverts) and dull blue-green vs dark blue mid-crown to hindcrown (3); lack of buff barring on mantle, back and scapulars (2); much stronger buff on underparts (at least in female) (2). These two species occasionally placed in genus Monachalcyon. Monotypic.
