Philippine species limits

Collar 2011. Species limits in some Philippine birds including the Greater Flameback Chrysocolaptes lucidus. Forktail 27: 29-38.
Quote:
Philippine bird taxonomy is relatively conservative and in need of re-examination. A number of well-marked subspecies were selected and subjected to a simple system of scoring (Tobias et al. 2010 Ibis 152: 724-746) that grades morphological and vocal differences between allopatric taxa (exceptional character 4, major 3, medium 2, minor 1; minimum score 7 for species status). This results in the recognition or confirmation of species status for (inverted commas where a new English name is proposed) 'Philippine Collared Dove' Streptopelia (bitorquatus) dusumieri, 'Philippine Green Pigeon' Treron (pompadora) axillaris and 'Buru Green Pigeon' T. (p.) aromatica, Luzon Racquet-tail Prioniturus montanus, Mindanao Racquet-tail P. waterstradti, Blue-winged Racquet-tail P. verticalis, Blue-headed Racquet-tail P. platenae, Yellow-breasted Racquet-tail P. flavicans, White-throated Kingfisher Halcyon (smyrnensis) gularis (with White-breasted Kingfisher applying to H. smyrnensis), 'Northern Silvery Kingfisher' Alcedo (argentata) flumenicola, 'Rufous-crowned Bee-eater' Merops (viridis) americanus, 'Spot-throated Flameback' Dinopium (javense) everetti, 'Luzon Flameback' Chrysocolaptes (lucidus) haematribon, 'Buff-spotted Flameback' C. (l.) lucidus, 'Yellow-faced Flameback' C. (l.) xanthocephalus, 'Red-headed Flameback' C. (l.) erythrocephalus, 'Javan Flameback' C. (l.) strictus, Greater Flameback C. l. guttacristatus, 'Sri Lankan Flameback' (Crimson-backed Flameback) Chrysocolaptes (l.) stricklandi, 'Southern Sooty Woodpecker' Mulleripicus (funebris) fuliginosus, Visayan Wattled Broadbill Eurylaimus (steerii) samarensis, White-lored Oriole Oriolus (steerii) albiloris, Tablas Drongo Dicrurus (hottentottus) menagei, Grand or Long-billed Rhabdornis Rhabdornis (inornatus) grandis, 'Visayan Rhabdornis' Rhabdornis (i.) rabori, and 'Visayan Shama' Copsychus (luzoniensis) superciliaris. However, Phapitreron leucotis nigrorum and P. l. brevirostris, P. amethystina maculipectus, Ceyx melanurus mindanensis, Orthotomus casteneiceps frontalis and Phylloscopus trivirgatus nigrorum do not quite make species status and require further vocal or other evidence; and Sulu or Black-billed Hanging Parrot Loriculus bonapartei and Camiguin Hanging Parrot L. camiguinensis are here considered to remain part of Philippine Hanging Parrot L. philippensis.

Greater Flameback

For clarity, the proposed arrangement of the Chrysocolaptes lucidus complex:
  • C haematribon - Luzon Flameback
  • C lucidus - Buff-spotted Flameback (incl rufopunctatus, montanus)
  • C xanthocephalus - Yellow-faced Flameback
  • C erythrocephalus - Red-headed Flameback
  • C strictus - Javan Flameback (incl kangeanensis)
  • C guttacristatus - Greater Flameback (incl socialis, chersonesus, andrewsi)
  • C stricklandi - Sri Lankan Flameback
For reference: Winkler & Christie 2002 (HBW 7).

Where does it say accepted. All I see still is PS next to the bird, not the AS that would be in front of it had it been accepted.

I see the following (split from C lucidus sensu stricto 'Buff-spotted Flameback', citing Mees 1996, Collar 2011)...
Quote:
AS 2.11 Luzon Flameback Chrysocolaptes haematribon
AS 2.11 Yellow-faced Flameback Chrysocolaptes xanthocephalus
AS 2.11 Red-headed Flameback Chrysocolaptes erythrocephalus
AS 2.11 Javan Flameback Chrysocolaptes strictus
AS 2.11 Greater Flameback Chrysocolaptes guttacristatus

Weird...I guess my computer was pulling up the old version, as I had to click your link and hit refresh before the PS changed to an AS

Orthotomus (castaneiceps) chloronotus

Collar 2011...
Quote:
... It might therefore be more appropriate for chloronotus to be given monotypic species status under the name 'Green-backed Tailorbird', ...
However, further study incorporating vocal evidence of the whole Orthotomus complex is clearly needed, and it seems safer to leave any rearrangement until vocal and molecular evidence can be assembled and assessed.
Supported by Sheldon et al (in press): Orthotomus tailorbirds.

Orthotomus frontalis

Quote:
Collar 2011...

Orthotomus casteneiceps frontalis...do(es) not quite make species status and require(s) further vocal or other evidence
Sheldon et al. (in press) show that O. frontalis is actually sister to O. sericeus, and nowhere near O. castaneiceps. Tobias et al. (2010) is a great tool, but certainly not foolproof!

The Philippine archipelago presents an ideal system to study historical biogeographic patterns in birds because of its high rate of endemism, its complex geological history and its strategic location between the species-rich Oriental and Australasian faunal regions. The whistlers (genus Pachycephala), a group of insectivorous passerines distributed throughout Oceania, Australia, and southeast Asia, are represented by three endemic species and one non-endemic species in the Philippines. We use a 5-locus dataset and model-based phylogenetic methods to reconstruct the evolutionary history of Philippine whistlers to illuminate patterns of diversification in the archipelago. Analyses using different software and program settings for ancestral area reconstruction reveal different patterns of whistler colonizations in the Philippines. It is uncertain whether the Philippines served as a biogeographic dead end for whistlers, or as a pathway to the rest of Southeast Asia. We detect considerable genetic structure in some populations of the widespread Pachycephala philippinensis. Our study also shows that the Palawan population of Pachycephala cinerea is distantly related to its putative conspecifics on the Sunda Shelf and merits recognition as a full species.

A useful synopsis, Des.

Certainly seems to be open season for Philippine taxonomy! Plenty to consider for the next version of your checklist.

Not many more to go before McGregor's taxonomy gets fully reinstated!
I have my own updated list of course :)

Philippine scops owls

[quote=Daniel Philippe;2186739]
Miranda, H. C. Jr. et al., 2011. Phylogeny and taxonomic review of Philippine lowland scops owls (Strigiformes): parallel diversification of highland and lowland clades. Wilson J. Orn. 123 (3): 441-452.

Abstract: ... Based on molecular and morphological evidence, we recognize the following Otus megalotis subspecies as full species: Luzon Lowland Scops Owl (O. megalotis), Mindanao Lowland Scops Owl (O. everetti), and Visayan Lowland Scops Owl (O. nigrorum). We also propose reassigning the Giant Scops Owl (Mimizuku gurneyi) to the genus Otus for phyletic consistency.
