1 The family name Myiagridae may be senior, see Boles (1981) [Boles, 1981 #400], but Bock (1994) [Bock, 1994 #398] argued for the preservation of Monarchidae based on prevailing usage.
2 Sequence of genera based on Filardi & Moyle (2005) [Filardi, 2005 #9844] and Filardi & Smith (2005) [Filardi, 2005 #9845].
3 For correct date see Duncan (1937) [Duncan, 1937 #1442].
4 Includes seranensis; see White & Bruce (1986) [White, 1986 #4194].
5 For reasons to revert to 1801 and not use 1802 see Schodde et al. (2010) [Schodde, 2010 #12422].
6 Dual original spellings. The author later elected this spelling as allowed under Art. 24.2.4 of the Code (I.C.Z.N., 1999) [I.C.Z.N., 1999 #2059].
7 Considered to form a superspecies with M. caledonica and M. albiventris; see Mayr (1933) [Mayr, 1933 #15657].
8 For recognition, see Ford (1983) [Ford, 1983 #1580] and White & Bruce (1986) [White, 1986 #4194].
9 For taxon differentiation in New Guinea and the Bismarck Archipelago complex and may involve cryptic speciation, see Mayr (1955) [Mayr, 1955 #2556] and Ford (1983) [Ford, 1983 #1580].
10 Name introduced in the Manuel d'Ornithologie by Lesson in June 1828 citing the plate from the Voyage de la Coquille, but the publication of the plate dates from November. However, see Dickinson et al. (2015) [Dickinson, 2015 #15882] for adding Garnot to the authorship.
11 For selection of this name see Schodde & Dickinson (2005) [Schodde, 2005 #7783] who, acting as First Revisers, assigned priority to this name over Myiagra rubecula melvillensis Mathews, 1912. For recognition see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524], who made tormenti a junior synonym.
12 For treatment as a separate species from M. inquieta; see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
13 For reasons to revert to 1801 and not use 1802 see Schodde et al. (2010) [Schodde, 2010 #12422].
14 For correct date see Dickinson et al. (2011) [Dickinson, 2011 #13287].
15 For treatment as a separate species from A. telescopthalmus see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
16 Considered to form a superspecies with A. insularis, A. lorealis and A. kaupi; see Watson et al. (1986) [Watson, 1986 #4448].
17 For correct spelling and for attribution to Lesson & Garnot see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524]; in this specific case publication in the Atlas (attributed to the two authors) preceded publication of a description usually attributed to Garnot alone.
18 The form henkei is an intergradient population between harterti and lauterbachi and so not recognised here; see Schoode & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
19 For treatment as a separate species from A. telescopthalmus see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
20 For recognition see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
21 Placement between Arses and Myiagra follows Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524] and Filardi & Moyle (2005) [Filardi, 2005 #9844]. Treatment at family rank unfounded, see Olson (1989) [Olson, 1989 #2850] and Baverstock et al. (1992) [Baverstock, 1992 #240].
22 For recognition see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
23 Name conserved; see Opinion 2240 (I.C.Z.N., 2009) [I.C.Z.N., 2009 #12281].
24 For reasons to revert to 1801 and not use 1802 see Schodde et al. (2010) [Schodde, 2010 #12422].
25 Correct original spelling. Spelling bruijni in Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533] was an ISS.
26 For date correction see Poggi (1996) [Poggi, 1996 #10153].
27 Recognition follows Christidis & Boles (2008) [Christidis, 2008 #11602], based on Filardi & Smith (2005) [Filardi, 2005 #9845] and Filardi & Moyle (2005) [Filardi, 2005 #9844] who suggested that this genus may still not be monophyletic.
28 Revision of species sequence awaits more complete taxon sampling and so unchanged.
29 For best date of publication see Poggi (2010) [Poggi, 2010 #12656].
30 First published by Lesson in his Manuel d'Ornithologie in June 1828; citation from Garnot's text in 1829 by Mayr (1986) [Watson, 1986 #4448] was mistaken. However, Garnot is a co-author in this text within the Manuel see Dickinson et al. (2015) [Dickinson, 2015 #15882].

36 Requires revision; holotype found to match nigrimentum; see Dekker (2003) [Dekker, 2003 #1259].
37 Paraphyletic with Australian subspecies melanorrhous and gouldii according to Filardi & Smith (2005) [Filardi, 2005 #9845], but confirmation needed from broader taxon sampling before status changed, see Christidis & Boles (2008) [Christidis, 2008 #11602].
38 For correct date see Duncan (1937) [Duncan, 1937 #1442].

55 Name first published by Lesson in June 1828 in his Manuel d'Ornithologie just weeks before the caption to plate 17 in the Voyage de la Coquille also in June 1828. In the Manuel Garnot is evidently a co-author see Dickinson et al. (2015 [Dickinson, 2015 #15882].
