G. R. Gray, 1858,
Kai Islands, Moluccas.
See P. fuscicapillus. In past, usually treated as race of P. moluccensis, but this arrangement inconsistent biogeographically and morphologically with current treatment of other Moluccan congeners, as P. subcorniculatus and P. moluccensis are more similar to each other than either is to present species#R. In past, birds of Tanimbar sometimes separated as race timorlaoensis, differing merely in bill averaging slightly thinner#R. Monotypic.
Kai Is (Kai Kecil, Kai Dulah and Kai Besar) and Tanimbar Is (Larat and Yamdena), in E Banda Sea.
