Treats yellow-eyed S Asian Tachybaptus ruficollis 'capensis' as subspecifically distinct (T r albescens Blanford 1877, probably including iraquensis), restricting T r capensis to the red-eyed Afrotropical population.

Which ssp fall under T. tricolor? I'm guessing just vulcanorum and collaris?

Hoping to squeeze another armchair tick as i've seen poggei

You're right - T tricolor includes just tricolor, vulcanorum and collaris. Poggei remains a subspecies of T ruficollis sensu stricto.

IOC fully adopted the proposed split of T tricolor with effect from IOC World Bird List v2.7 (Dec 2010):

v3 Draft 1 (Dec 2010) shows the assignment of subspecies:
