Monarcha hebetior eichhorni
E. J. O. Hartert, 1924,
Until recently treated as conspecific with M. hebetior (see above), and hitherto as conspecific with M. cervinicolor, but differs from latter in characters given under that species (see below). Differs from former in its larger size (mean male tail 71.5 mm vs 60.7#R; allow 2); and (in female) dark grey vs blue-black crown and head sides (3); dull grey vs creamy throat and breast, plus mid-grey vs creamy-buff belly (3); darker tail (1); and (in male) slightly more purplish-black plumage (ns). Monotypic.
