Until recently considered conspecific with C. enca, but molecular evidence#R suggests that it is unrelated; differs from taxa in that species (which see) in its barely visible but (on specimens) well-defined black hood contrasting with deep blue-black body (2); slightly shorter bill than other taxa (1) except C. e. sierramadrensis, which has a much smaller wing and tail (at least 2); and two highly distinct vocalizations, a short high “rah” (at least 2) and a nasal mewing “nyeh” (at least 2)#R. Monotypic.
Seram and Ambon, possibly also Buru, in S Moluccas.
