Until recently considered conspecific with T. longirostris, but this was split into five species#R (now six), present species differing from geographically and morphologically closest form, T. longirostris, in its notably more golden-yellow underparts (2); much-reduced yellow fringes on the tips and inner vanes of rectrices (2); vague half-wedge yellow lores below a very narrow blackish-brown frontal supercilial line and notably darker olive-green crown (2); rump a shade yellower, less green (ns); shorter bill (sample size very small; allow 1); and apparently distinctive vocalizations#R. Monotypic.
Togian Is, in Gulf of Tomini, off EC Sulawesi.
