Not mentioned in their taxonomic conclusions, but their figures suggest that Falco peregrinus is paraphyletic with respect to F. pelegrinoides. Lump?

A lump would be necessary in a phylogenetic species concept but not in other concepts -- at least that is my interpretation of what you write.

Take your pick – split by IOC and eBird/Clements, lumped by HBW/BirdLife and H&M4.

If you will insist on monophyly then according to this paper you may need to lump the larger falcons too.
Personally I find Barbary Falcon different enough but would like to see a really good study of all geographical races of Peregrine (maybe someone has this?)

Note also that IOC splits subspecies babylonicus and peregrinoides into Barbary Falcon, but eBird/Clements splits only peregrinoides.

Merlin

Fuchs et al 2015...
Quote:
Another pair of closely related species was formed by the merlin lineages, which have been considered a single species until recently (White et al., 1994; Dickinson, 2003), when mitochondrial COI barcoding analyses identified two genetic clusters correlated with geography (Johnsen et al., 2010). This molecular divergence, confirmed by our study, is coupled with plumages differences; based on this pattern we consider the Old World and New World merlin groups as different species (F. aesalon and F. columbarius, respectively) in the present study. Mitochondrial data suggest that the two species' ranges are separated by the Bering Strait and the Atlantic Ocean (Johnsen et al., 2010) but further sampling of subspecies is clearly needed to define the extent of possible gene flow.
White et al 2015 (HBW Alive).
