Borneo, India; error = Ambon.
Name bornea was replaced for a time recently by rubra, but new evidence concerning nutritional effects on plumage now explains anomalies in plate from which bornea was described#R. Form described as E. goodfellowi seems likely to represent immature of present species introduced to Obi. Race name cyanonotha misspelt in HBW as cyanothorus. Various populations have been awarded separate races on basis of purported size differences, but variability within these populations, or evidence of clines, suggests that size cannot be used as a subspecific character. Proposed races bernsteini (Kai Is) and rothschildi (Seram) invalid, as differences due to clinal variation. Two subspecies recognized.
Small introduced population (unknown subspecies) in Taiwan.
