Yes, you're right if you follow the split. I think birds that are now called Large-billed Crow are only found in the North, but i'm not entirely sure where the cut off is.

Actually I thought Large-billed are now further sth - i.e. from N Malay Peninsula south and across to more eastern asian countries?

I think they are in the far South too, linked by the mountains on the Burmese/Thai border. But as far as I can see their distribution is still a mess in Thailand unless i'm missing some more recent information...

There's some info here on their ranges in Thailand, but as you can see there is still work to be done!
