Probably closest to O. ireneae. Has been considered conspecific with Asian O. balli on basis of morphology, but differs significantly in plumage and vocal characters. Some authors have included Sumatran form “stresemanni” of O. spilocephalus (see that species) as a race of present species, or regarded the two species as close relatives. Two subspecies recognized.
