Ixos (Trichixos) phaeocephalus
Melaka, Peninsular Malaysia.
According to some recent authors#R, deep mtDNA divergences and clear plumage differences suggest that nominate race and connectens may represent two separate species, with sulphuratus and diardi together constituting a third species; delimitation of races in Borneo is complex, variation appearing clinal, and perhaps only extremes merit recognition; further study required, including investigation of vocal differences and identification of exact areas of overlap of taxa in Borneo (where species probably present throughout). Three putative races (caniceps, rufocaudatus, cantori) merged with nominate; medius (Long Petah, in E Borneo) indistinguishable from sulphuratus. Four subspecies recognized.
