1 Circumscription with inclusion of Ptilorrhoa - placed in the Eupetidae in Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533] - based on molecular data from Norman et al. (2009) [Norman, 2009 #11907], Jønsson et al. (2011) [Jønsson, 2011 #12727] and Aggerbeck et al. (2014) [Aggerbeck, 2014 #15380].
2 Sequence of species follows Toon et al. (2012) [Toon, 2012 #13473], although P. geislerorum was not mentioned.
3 Subspecific identity of population in Foya Mts. requires clarification.
4 Eastern limits unclear. May reach Star or Victor Emanuel Range.
5 Western limits beyond Mt. Hagen/Tari region unclear.
6 For correct date see Poggi (1996, 2010) [Poggi, 1996 #10153], [Poggi, 2010 #12656].
7 Subspecific identity of population in Foya Mts. presumed because of flanking populations of uropygialis.
8 For date correction see Howes (1896) [Howes, 1896 #2022].
9 Dated 1835 by Sherborn (1898) [Sherborn, 1898 #3604] and Deignan (1964) [Deignan, 1964 #1248]; but Mees (1994) [Mees, 1994 #2636] has shown that this dates from 1836. See also Dickinson (2001) [Dickinson, 2001 #1369].
10 For treatment as a separate species from P. caerulescens see Coates (1990) [Coates, 1990 #1003] and Boles (2007) [Boles, 2007 #12230].
11 Species sequence follows Toon et al. (2012) [Toon, 2012 #13473].
12 Mees (1994) [Mees, 1994 #2636] has shown that this dates from 1836; Sherborn (1898) [Sherborn, 1898 #3604] and Deignan (1964) [Deignan, 1964 #1248] gave 1835.
13 Reports of outlying population near Herberton, NE Queensland, unidentified to subspecies.
14 For recommended date of publication see Dickinson et al. (2011) [Dickinson, 2011 #13287].
15 Reports of outlying population near Herberton, NE Queensland, unidentified to subspecies.
16 The prior names dundasi and morgani come from zones of intergradation between fordianum and clarum and as names attached to hybrids are not used here (Schodde & Mason, 1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524]. See Higgins & Peter (2002) [Higgins, 2002 #13592] and Toon et al. (2012) [Toon, 2012 #13473] for support for recognition of this population.
17 Includes mayri see Ford (1981) [Ford, 1981 #15450].
18 For reasons to separate this from C. castaneothorax see Condon (1962) [Condon, 1962 #1032], recently corroborated by Toon et al. (2012) [Toon, 2012 #13473]. For treatment as a subspecies of C. castaneothorax see Deignan (1964) [Deignan, 1964 #1248], Ford (1984) [Ford, 1984 #1579] and Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
19 Includes samueli see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
20 Included in this species by Ford (1984) [Ford, 1984 #1579]; data in Toon et al. (2012) [Toon, 2012 #13473] equivocal with respect to species status.
