1 Treatment here based on Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524]; see also Christidis & Boles (1994, 2008) [Christidis, 1994 #757], [Christidis, 2008 #11602], Higgins & Peter (2002) [Higgins, 2002 #13592] and Gregory (2007) [Gregory, 2007 #12234].
2 Considered by Sibley & Monroe (1990) [Sibley, 1990 #3636] to form a superspecies with D. longirostris.
3 Molecular data inconsistent with differentiation; see Roberts et al. (2011) [Roberts, 2011 #12877].
4 For reasons to revert to 1801 and not use 1802 see Schodde et al. (2010) [Schodde, 2010 #12422].
5 For treatment as separate from D. brachypterus see Schodde (1975) [Schodde, 1975 #3503], Christidis & Boles (1994, 2008) [Christidis, 1994 #757], [Christidis, 2008 #11602] and Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
