E. J. O. Hartert, 1898,
Hitherto treated as conspecific with E. tenuirostre (now broken into nine species), but differs from closely adjacent form E. t. tagulanum in its (both sexes) much heavier, deeper bill (allow 3); (in female) pale rufous vs buffy-whitish underparts (2); confinement of bars to sides of neck and breast (2); unbarred vs lightly barred rump (1); darker, browner upperparts (ns); and (in male) much less pronounced pale wing fringes (ns). Differs from E. remotum in its (both sexes) much heavier, deeper bill (allow 3); (in female) confinement of bars to sides of neck and breast vs no or complete barring (2); darker upperparts (1); broader rufous edges of rectrices (1). Monotypic.
