Bourns and Worcester, 1894,
Until recently treated as conspecific with R. cyaniceps and R. albiventris. Split initially proposed on basis of molecular evidence#R, and this reinforced by its broader white shaft streaks on breast (1); stronger rufous wingpanel connecting to back (2); rufous-buff vs tan-buff belly (1); longer wing (effect size for males, n = 8, 2.04, score 2); lower-pitched call#R, only recording being of a “chep” vs a metallic “tsik”, hence frequency (2) and note shape (1). Monotypic.
Tablas, in NC Philippines.
