Jerdon and Blyth, 1861,
Previously listed as F. hodgsonii but, with merging of Muscicapella into present genus, name hodgsonii becomes preoccupied and is replaced by present name#R; as erithacus was considered a homonym of [Siphia] erythaca, an unused synonym of F. mugimaki, the next oldest valid name sordida was suggested#R and used#R for this taxon; however, recent work shows that erithacus and erythaca are both nouns, thus both indeclinable and not homonyms, leaving erithacus as the valid name for present species#R. Monotypic.
