Statius Müller, 1776,
Proposed race challengeri no longer regarded as valid: apparently known only from type specimens, purchased at sea from local canoes purportedly coming from Miangas Is (extreme N Sulawesi subregion), although probably from Nenusa Is (closer to Talaud Is), but birds may have originated from neither, and now thought probably to have been either dispersing or introduced; these specimens may have been immatures of talautensis, and characters of size and plumage appear to overlap with this race#R#R; if the two names prove to be synonyms, name challengeri would have priority; further study required. Two subspecies currently recognized.
