E. J. O. Hartert, 1898,
Hitherto considered conspecific with D. basilica, but differs in its grey-pink vs pinkish-white breast (2); darker rusty belly to vent (subscore 1), this colour extending onto underwing-coverts, which are black in basilica (subscore 2) (total score 3); pinkish-rufous vs grey-pink hindcrown, nape and upper neck-sides, the colour extending farther down onto mantle (in some specimens at least; others unclear) (2). Also closely related to D. rufigaster and D. finschii, and all four sometimes considered conspecific. Monotypic.
Obi, in C Moluccas.
