Srix [sic] Lempiji
Traditionally considered to belong to species-group centred on O. bakkamoena (which see). Frequently treated as part of O. bakkamoena, and sometimes considered conspecific with O. lettia, but vocalizations distinct. Race cnephaeus has recently been treated as separate species#R on account of “song totally different” (“a resonant hoot at the same pitch: kwookh, uttered at intervals of c. 14 seconds….without any inflection”), but this is not supported by other observers, who report that cnephaeus has another call that does contain the upward inflection that allies it very closely with lempiji#R#R#R#R; indeed, cnephaeus and hypnodes are sometimes subsumed within nominate#R, from which condorensis also is doubtfully distinct. Six subspecies tentatively recognized.
