Placement in present genus recently confirmed via genetics#R; morphological and other features, e.g. wing formula (with short primary P2, as small as or smaller than P10), head pattern (trace of superciliary stripe) and speckled eggs, had already suggested that species was incorrectly assigned to Zosterops. Although birds from Flores slightly smaller on average than those from Sumba, difference considered too trivial to warrant naming of geographical races. Treated as monotypic.
