Taxonomy

Split with minimus

The Nicobar Serpent Eagle was formerly placed under the name S. minimus. Since then, Rasmussen & Anderton (2005) showed S. m. minimus to actually be a subspecies of S. cheela (Crested Serpent Eagle), and S. m. klossi to be a distinct species. It adopted the common name Nicobar Serpent Eagle (under which minimus was formerly known).
