Presumably, viator had both (Philippine + Ruddy), but now has only Philippine (sensu v6.2)...?How did you lose one? You still have Philippine Cuckoo-Dove but presumably not the split?
You now have Philippine instead of Ruddy?
It has a very small range for a mainland species (with the extent of occurrence estimated at just 850 km2) – ref BirdLife species factsheet.I find the new Torquoise-throated Barbet range a bit odd, S Thailand but not N Malaysia.
That's pretty localised, so Thailand has a new endemic.
IOC World Bird List v6.2...Re IOC v6.2, I'm trying to figure out where Ailuroedus melanotis guttaticollis went...
Ref www.birdforum.net/showpost.php?p=3329389&postcount=3Northern Catbird Ailuroedus jobiensis - Includes guttaticollis. Beehler & Pratt (ms), Irestedt et al. 2015.
Ailuroedus jobiensis - Northern Catbird (monotypic, incl 'guttaticollis')
Andy, I suspect that you're slightly confusing the term 'includes'.Thanks Richard, I was doing it simply from the update list rather than the full sheet.
The Update list doesn't mention the other races included with Northern but it does for the others.
Andy, I suspect that you're slightly confusing the term 'includes'.
The IOC Species Updates page lists the valid subspecies included within the newly-split species.
But IOC no longer recognises guttaticollis as a valid subspecies – v6.2 follows Irestedt et al in treating guttaticollis as a synonym of jobiensis.
(Perhaps the synonymisation could have been listed under Subspecies Updates for clarity.)
