Formerly placed in genus Ninox, and sometimes thought to be close to Ninox scutulata. Recent genetic data, however, indicate that this species is an Athene#R, although corroborative evidence from further sampling is desirable; many works continue to place present species in Ninox#R#R, and one even suggests it belongs in its own genus#R. Monotypic.
