Has been placed in genus Malimbus; in the past was sometimes placed in a monotypic genus, Rhinoploceus. Validity of taxon has been questioned, and suggested by some authors that it could represent occasional hybrids between all-black species such as P. nigerrimus and P. albinucha; former has long hindclaw, latter short hindclaw, and present species intermediate hindclaw, but legs yellow (not dull brownish as in other species); further research required. Monotypic.
Ituri Forest, in NE DRCongo.
