Until recently#R considered conspecific with P. murina, but differs in its larger size (effect size for tail 2.05, score 2); whitish vs yellowish belly (2); blacker bill (1); vaguer, buffier wingbars (1); distinctly different song, a short phrase of about five notes, typically a few very squeaky and a few rather gravelly, vs a usually gravelly nervous series of notes which suddenly increases in amplitude and pitch, “je-je-je-je-jE-JE-JEE-Ju”, with minor variations (last note lower in pitch and amplitude), hence major difference in amplitude ratio (3) and number of notes (3)#R; split supported by molecular evidence#R. Three subspecies recognized.
