1 Revision basis Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253], in turn based on Driskell & Christidis (2004) [Driskell, 2004 #1426]. Australian taxa based on Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524] and Christidis & Boles (2008) [Christidis, 2008 #11602] and Higgins et al. (2001) [Higgins, 2001 #1963] except where indicated.
2 Position in family phylogeny follows Driskell & Christidis (2004) [Driskell, 2004 #1426] and Gardner et al. (2010) [Gardner, 2010 #12103], but see Nyári & Joseph (2011) [Nyári, 2011 #13248] who found a different assemblage with Ptiloprora as basal. Further study needed.

16 Separated from Meliphaga by Sibley & Monroe (1990) [Sibley, 1990 #3636] and Christidis in Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253]; position in sequence of genera relative to Meliphaga unchanged (information from DNA as yet unavailable).
17 Circumscription follows Schodde (1975) [Schodde, 1975 #3503], supported by Christidis & Schodde (1993) [Christidis, 1993 #756], Christidis in Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253], and data in Norman et al. (2007) [Norman, 2007 #9991].
18 The species M. lewinii, M. notata and M. aruensis form the lewinii species group, with a further possible undescribed species on the south coast of SE New Guinea; see Christidis & Schodde (1993) [Christidis, 1993 #756] and subsequent authors.
19 For recognition see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524], also Higgins et al. (2001) [Higgins, 2001 #1963].
20 Use of this name with reference to Certhia chrysotis Latham, 1801 and Meliphaga chrysotis Lewin, 1808 approved by Opinion 792 (I.C.Z.N., 1966) [I.C.Z.N., 1966 #9454]; see footnote in Salomonsen (1967) [Salomonsen, 1967 #3455].
21 Includes nea; see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
22 This species belongs with the lewini group, see Christidis & Schodde (1993) [Christidis, 1993 #756].
23 Populations from east coast of Gulf of Papua southeast to Milne Bay approach sharpei morphologically but are discrepant in DNA signal and may represent a cryptic species; see Norman et al. (2007) [Norman, 2007 #9991] and Christidis in Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253].
24 Sequence follows Christidis in Higgins (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253], but see also Nyári & Joseph (2011) [Nyári, 2011 #13248].
25 Populations in Fakfak, Kumawa and Wandammen Mts. of Vogelkop (Bombarai Pen.) kept in facialis after Mayr (1941) [Mayr, 1941 #2550]; see Christidis in Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253]. But see Diamond (1985) [Diamond, 1985 #1321] for association with subspecies citreola.
26 Transferred from the species analoga by Diamond (1969) [Diamond, 1969 #1317]. Population in Foya Mts. may belong to this subspecies; see Diamond (1985) [Diamond, 1985 #1321].
27 Inclusion of Adelbert Range population tentative; see Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253].
28 Includes papuae, see Diamond (1969) [Diamond, 1969 #1317] and Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253]; suggested hybridisation with M. cinereifrons recorded by Salomonsen (1967) [Salomonsen, 1967 #3455] requires confirmation.
29 Includes connectens; see Diamond (1969) [Diamond, 1969 #1317] and Christidis in Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253]. Also includes Meliphaga mimikae rara; see LeCroy (2011) [LeCroy, 2011 #13224].
30 Includes setakwa, auga and gretae formerly placed in M. montana by Salomonsen (1967) [Salomonsen, 1967 #3455]; see Diamond (1972) [Diamond, 1972 #1318], Beehler & Finch (1985) [Beehler, 1985 #15365] and Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253].
31 Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533] included stevensi and cinereifrons as subspecies here, but see Norman et al. (2007) [Norman, 2007 #9991] and Christidis in Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253].
32 For separation from M. gracilis and treatment as monotypic see Norman et al. (2007) [Norman, 2007 #9991] and Christidis in Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253]. Seniority of cinereifrons over simultaneously published stevensi established by Christidis in Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253].
33 Tentatively includes stevensi; see Norman et al. (2007) [Norman, 2007 #9991] and Christidis in Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253]. However, identity of type of stevensi requires establishment.
34 For placement in Meliphaga, see Schodde & Mason (1975) [Schodde, 1975 #15366] and Christidis & Schodde (1993) [Christidis, 1993 #756]. See also Christidis & Schodde (1993) [Christidis, 1993 #756] and Norman et al. (2007) [Norman, 2007 #9991].
35 Considered to form a superspecies with M. fordiana; see Norman et al. (2007) [Norman, 2007 #9991].
36 For recognition as species see Norman et al. (2007) [Norman, 2007 #9991] and Christidis in Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253], based on data in Schodde (1989) [Schodde, 1989 #3517] and Christidis & Schodde (1993) [Christidis, 1993 #756].
37 For transfer to Meliphaga from Lichenostomus see Norman et al. (2007) [Norman, 2007 #9991] and Christidis in Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253].
38 Livraison 5 of the Planches Coloriées appeared in 1820 with a wrapper including this name, see Froriep (1821) [Froriep, 1821 #1622], Dickinson (2001) [Dickinson, 2001 #1369] and Dickinson (2012) [Dickinson, 2012 #13798].
39 Raised to full genus following Nyári & Joseph (2011) [Nyári, 2011 #13248]; interpolation in sequence as sister to Ptilotula follows their phylogeny. These three species form a superspecies; see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
40 Subspecies recognition follows Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524] and Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253], but see Joseph & Wilke (2007) [Joseph, 2007 #13421].
41 Includes westwoodia; see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
42 Includes insularis; see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
43 Re-sequencing fasciogularis between virescens and versicolor allows for sister relationships with both, consistent with alternative assessments of Ford (1982) [Ford, 1982 #15367] or Nyári & Joseph (2011) [Nyári, 2011 #13248].
44 Includes vulgaris and intermedius, see Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253]; intermedius is intergradient between sonoroides and nominate versicolor; see Coates (1990) [Coates, 1990 #1003].
45 For date correction see Duncan (1937) [Duncan, 1937 #1442].
46 Raised to full genus following Nyári & Joseph (2011) [Nyári, 2011 #13248] and following their phylogeny interpolated in sequence as sister to Gavicalis, and with their with species sequence.
47 Precedence of Ptilotula Mathews, 1912 chosen over simultaneously published Paraptilotis Mathews, 1912 by Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524] under Article 24.2 of the Code (I.C.Z.N., 1999) [I.C.Z.N., 1999 #2059].
48 Replacement of ethelae with graingeri as the name for this form follows Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524], pending DNA check of the identity of the type of ethelae.
49 Associated with nominate Lichenostomus by Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524], but they also noted an affinity with Ptilotula which has since been corroborated by Nyári & Joseph (2011) [Nyári, 2011 #13248].
50 Considered to form a superspecies with P. flavescens; see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
51 Includes dawsoni; considered an intergradient population by Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
52 For separation from P. fusca see Ford (1986) [Ford, 1986 #1582] and Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
53 Tentatively included in nominate flavescens by Higgins et al. (2001) [Higgins, 2001 #1963] and Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253]; see also Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524], but retained here pending fuller support for that action.
54 For date correction see Anon. (1929) [Anon., 1929 #14054].
55 Includes zanda and deserticola; see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
56 The names centralia and interioris belong to intergrading populations; see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
57 For recognition see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].

59 Includes mellori; see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
60 Formerly in Lichenostomus; the subgenus circumscribed by Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524] is raised to genus rank following Nyári & Joseph (2011) [Nyári, 2011 #13248]. Interpolation of this in the sequence of genera follows them.
61 Tentative recognition follows Ford (1986) [Ford, 1986 #1582] as reviewed by Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
62 Formerly in Lichenostomus. This genus-group name employed by Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524] raised to genus rank following Nyári & Joseph (2011) [Nyári, 2011 #13248] and placed in their sequence.
63 Subspecies recognition follows Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253].
64 For recognition see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
65 For reasons to revert to 1801 and not use 1802 see Schodde et al. (2010) [Schodde, 2010 #12422].
66 Formerly included in Phylidonyris; as e.g. in Salomonsen (1967) [Salomonsen, 1967 #3455], but shown by Driskell & Christidis (2004) [Driskell, 2004 #1426], to be without close relatives but fitting here and distant from Phylidonyris.
67 Evidence of paraphyly found by Nyári & Joseph (2011) [Nyári, 2011 #13248] in historic Lichenostomus assemblage requires redistribution of species groups and subgenera, discussed in Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524], which are now ranked as full genera.
68 Subspecies recognition follows Crome (1973) [Crome, 1973 #15369] and Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524] except for recognition of subspecies gippslandica (q.v.).

79 Forms a superspecies with M. princeps; see Christidis in Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253]. This superspecies and M. fuscus may be warrant treatment in the genus Melionyx Iredale; see Christidis in Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253].
80 For date correction see Quaisser & Eck (2006) [Quaisser, 2006 #7425].
81 Forms a superspecies with M. belfordi, M. rufocrissalis and M. foersteri; see Christidis in Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253], as they explain this superspecies and M. ochromelas form the belfordi species group.
82 For date correction see Quaisser & Eck (2006) [Quaisser, 2006 #7425].
83 The subspecies stresemanni and griseirostris recognised by Salomonsen (1967) [Salomonsen, 1967 #3455] and Rand & Gilliard (1967) [Rand, 1967 #3199] rejected here as intergradient M. belfordi X M. rufocrissalis; see Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253].
84 Included in nominate belfordi in Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533] following Salomonsen (1967) [Salomonsen, 1967 #3455], but abruptly and consistently smaller, and recognised here following Diamond (1972) [Diamond, 1972 #1318] and Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253].
85 Recognition as species follows Rand & Gilliard (1967) [Rand, 1967 #3199], Beehler & Finch (1985) [Beehler, 1985 #15365] and Christidis in Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253]; but see Salomonsen (1967) [Salomonsen, 1967 #3455].
86 Originally named gilliardi Diamond, 1967 [Diamond, 1967 #1316] but preoccupied by M. fuscus gilliardi Salomonsen, 1966.
87 Recognition as species follows Rand & Gilliard (1967) [Rand, 1967 #3199], Beehler & Finch (1985) [Beehler, 1985 #15365] and Christidis in Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253]; but see Salomonsen (1967) [Salomonsen, 1967 #3455].
88 For date correction see Duncan (1937) [Duncan, 1937 #1442].
89 Occurrence in Adelbert Range and identity of subspecies there need verification, see Diamond (1972) [Diamond, 1972 #1318]; treatment here follows Coates (1990) [Coates, 1990 #1003].
90 Relationships unclear and controversial; see Christidis in Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253].
91 Sister to Melidectes; see Driskell & Christidis (2004) [Driskell, 2004 #1426].
92 For reasons to revert to 1801 and not use 1802 see Schodde et al. (2010) [Schodde, 2010 #12422].
93 Forms a superspecies with M. flavigula; see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
94 Referred to nominate melanocephala by Higgins et al. (2001) [Higgins, 2001 #1963], titaniota but retained because of distinct and abruptly differentiated traits, see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
95 The type of crassirostris, supposedly from Cairns, is intergradient between titaniota and melanocephala and evidently a hybrid see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
96 Subspecies lepidota Schodde & Mason, 1999 [Schodde, 1999 #3524] here merged with nominate melanocephala as its differences are only clinal.
97 Name conserved; see Opinion 2240 (I.C.Z.N., 2009) [I.C.Z.N., 2009 #12281].
98 For reasons to revert to 1801 and not use 1802 see Schodde et al. (2010) [Schodde, 2010 #12422].

104 May be a separate species, see Higgins et al. (2001) [Higgins, 2001 #1963] and later authors, but published supporting evidence not yet sufficient given present widespread introgression between melanotis and nominate flavigula, see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524], Clarke et al. (2001) [Clarke, 2001 #11830] and Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12
105 Found paraphyletic with Lichenostomus in which, within the subgenus Caligavis, the two species had been placed by Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524] based on Christidis & Schodde (1993) [Christidis, 1993 #756].

166 Included as a subspecies of M. cardinalis by some authors, e.g. Mayr (1932) [Mayr, 1932 #15372]. Salomonsen (1967) [Salomonsen, 1967 #3455] recognised this as a full species, see also Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253]. This species belongs with the M. rubratra group and not the M. cardinalis group, see Koopman (1957) [Koopman, 1957 #14304].
167 Separation of this species, M. wakoloensis and M. boiei from M. sanguinolenta follows Bruce in White & Bruce (1986) [White, 1986 #4194], Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524] and Christidis in Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253]; but see White in White & Bruce (1986) [White, 1986 #4194] and Salomonsen (1967) [Salomonsen, 1967 #3455].
168 Includes charlottae; see White & Bruce (1986) [White, 1986 #4194] and Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253]. Identity of population in Sula Arch. needs confirmation.
169 Australian and New Caledonian populations treated here as conspecific following Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524], but see Christidis in Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253]. Reported dissimilarities in songs require fuller evaluation.
170 The name dibapha, based on Certhia dibapha Latham, 1802, was used by some authors, such as Mathews, who believed sanguinolenta to be indeterminate. See McAllan (1990) [McAllan, 1990 #2583].
171 For reasons to revert to 1801 and not use 1802 see Schodde et al. (2010) [Schodde, 2010 #12422].

175 Circumscription follows Christidis in Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253] and implicitly Pratt et al. (1987) [Pratt, 1987 #3119]; but see Salomonsen (1967) [Salomonsen, 1967 #3455] and Mayr & Diamond (2001) [Mayr, 2001 #10562].
176 For subspecies, see Mayr (1932) [Mayr, 1932 #15372], as emended by Salomonsen (1967) [Salomonsen, 1967 #3455] and Christidis in Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253].
177 Tentatively included in the M. cardinalis superspecies by Mayr & Diamond (2001) [Mayr, 2001 #10562], but tentatively excluded by Christidis in Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253] and implicitly by Salomonsen (1967) [Salomonsen, 1967 #3455].

183 Considered to form a superspecies with M. pammelaena, M. melanocephala, M. eichhorni, M. malaitae and M. tristrami, see Mayr & Diamond (2001) [Mayr, 2001 #10562] and Christidis in Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253]. However, paraphyly with M. cardinalis appears to be involved, see Smith & Filardi (2007) [Smith, 2007 #10843].
184 May be a member of the M. cardinalis superspecies; see Mayr & Diamond (2001) [Mayr, 2001 #10562] and Christidis in Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253].

225 Included species formerly in Lichenostomus, placed within subgenus Nesoptilotis by Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524]; since found by Nyári & Joseph (2011) [Nyári, 2011 #13248] to be widely paraphyletic with Lichenostomus and sister to Fijian Foulehaio.
226 For subspecies recognition, see Ford (1971) [Ford, 1971 #1576], Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524] and Higgins et al. (2001) [Higgins, 2001 #1963].
227 For reasons to revert to 1801 and not use 1802 see Schodde et al. (2010) [Schodde, 2010 #12422].
228 For recognition see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524] and Higgins et al. (2001) [Higgins, 2001 #1963].
229 Formerly associated with Meliphaga and Lichenostomus, but relationships revised based on findings of Driskell & Christidis (2004) [Driskell, 2004 #1426].
230 The species provocator, included here by Salomonsen (1967) [Salomonsen, 1967 #3455] and others, is tentatively referred to Xanthotis, following Sibley & Monroe (1990) [Sibley, 1990 #3636] and Christidis in Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253], but see Mayr (1932) [Mayr, 1932 #15372].
231 Circumscription follows Salomonsen (1967) [Salomonsen, 1967 #3455] and Christidis in Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253], but see Mayr (1932) [Mayr, 1932 #15372] and Wolters (1979) [Wolters, 1979 #4454]. Position in sequence of genera tentative in absence of DNA sequence evaluation.
232 G. viridis and G. samoensis form the Amoromyza species group in Gymnomyza; see Mayr (1932) [Mayr, 1932 #15372] and Wolters (1979) [Wolters, 1979 #4454].
233 May be specifically distinct; see Christidis in Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253].
234 Sister to Entomyzon; see Driskell & Christidis (2004) [Driskell, 2004 #1426] and Toon et al. (2010) [Toon, 2010 #15373]. See also Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524] and Christidis in Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253].
235 This species, M. validirostris and M. brevirostris form the Eidopsarus (gularis) species group; see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524] and Toon et al. (2010) [Toon, 2010 #15373].
236 For inclusion in the species gularis, see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524] and Higgins et al. (2001) [Higgins, 2001 #1963], but also see Ford (1986, 1987) [Ford, 1986 #1582], [Ford, 1987 #1585]; the forms carpentarianus and normantoniensis recognised by Salomonsen (1967) [Salomonsen, 1967 #3455] relate to intergrading populations. Includes parus; see
237 Subspecies based on Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524], but DNA differentiation shallow in mainland populations, suggesting basis for wombeyi and pallidiceps may prove ecophenotypic; see Toon et al. (2010) [Toon, 2010 #15373].
238 Replaces augustus pro parte of Salomonsen (1967) [Salomonsen, 1967 #3455], the type of which is treated as intergradient between leucogenys and pallidiceps by Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
239 Does not form a superspecies with M. gularis according to data in Toon et al. (2010) [Toon, 2010 #15373]. Includes kingi; see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
240 This species, M. lunatus, M. affinis and M. chloropsis form the Melithreptus (lunatus) species group, see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524]. However, M. albogularis may form its own species group, see Toon et al. (2010) [Toon, 2010 #15373].
241 Includes subalbogularis; see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
242 Cape York Pen. (and tentatively New Guinean) populations separated from nominate subspecies here, following DNA findings of Toon et al. (2010) [Toon, 2010 #15373]. Application of name vinitinctus (type locality Normanton) to this form, and identity of New Guinean populations, both need resolution.
243 Includes schoddei McAllan & Bruce, 1989 [McAllan, 1989 #2582]; see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].

245 Includes alisteri; see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
246 Treated as a subspecies of lunatus by Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524]. But separated following finding of paraphyly with respect to M. affinis; see Toon et al. (2010) [Toon, 2010 #15373].
247 Sister to Melithreptus; see Driskell & Christidis (2004) [Driskell, 2004 #1426] and Toon et al. (2010) [Toon, 2010 #15373].
248 Includes apsleyi; see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
249 For recognition, see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524], and Higgins et al. (2001) [Higgins, 2001 #1963].
250 The name harterti applies to intergrades between this form and griseigularis see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
251 For reasons to revert to 1801 and not use 1802 see Schodde et al. (2010) [Schodde, 2010 #12422].
252 Position in sequence of genera based on Driskell & Christidis (2004) [Driskell, 2004 #1426].
253 Sequence of species unchanged from Salomonsen (1967) [Salomonsen, 1967 #3455] being consistent with the phylogenies of Driskell & Christidis (2004) [Driskell, 2004 #1426]. But see Christidis in Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253].
254 Although treated as basal in the genus by Mayr (1944) [Mayr, 1944 #2552] and Schodde & Mason 1999 [Schodde, 1999 #3524] this was recovered as sister to P. citreogularis by Driskell & Christidis (2004) [Driskell, 2004 #1426]. Because branch is deep, more complete taxon sampling needed.
255 Subspecies follow Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524], and Higgins et al. (2001) [Higgins, 2001 #1963] for Australian populations.

284 For date correction see Quaisser & Eck (2006) [Quaisser, 2006 #7425].
285 Forms a superspecies with X. flaviventer, based on data in Christidis & Schodde (1993) [Christidis, 1993 #756].
286 Subspecies and subspecies groups based on Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524], as modified by Higgins et al. (2008) [Higgins, 2008 #12253]; but they refer madaraszi to the meyerii subspecies group.
287 The subspecies rubiensis, giullianettii and kumusii recognised by Salomonsen (1967) [Salomonsen, 1967 #3455] interpreted as intergradient between flaviventer and saturatior, saturatior and visi, and visi and madaraszi respectively by Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
288 Name for this species originally Philedon chrysotis Lesson & Garnot, 1828, see Mayr (1941) [Mayr, 1941 #2550] and Rand & Gilliard (1967) [Rand, 1967 #3199], but preoccupied, see Salomonsen (1967) [Salomonsen, 1967 #3455] and Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524]; suppression of prior secondary homonym Certhia chrysotis Latham, 1801 by Opinion 792 (I.C.Z.N.,1966) [I.C.Z.N., 196
289 Data in Christidis & Schodde (1993) [Christidis, 1993 #756] imply that this forms a superspecies with X. macleayanus.
290 For recognition, see Mees (1965) [Mees, 1965 #2608].
291 Includes austera; see Mees (1965) [Mees, 1965 #2608].
