A. B. Meyer and Wiglesworth, 1898,
Tubakan, Sangihe Besar.
Hitherto considered conspecific with C. fallax, but differs on account of its significantly larger size (10%#R) (allow 2); much more extensive blue-spotted black crown, with larger blue spots and area covering frons, supercilium and mantle (none of these areas in fallax) (2); royal-blue vs shining turquoise rump and uppertail-coverts (2); much brighter rufous dorsal area and wing-coverts (blackish-rufous in fallax) (2). Monotypic.
