45 For recognition of obscuratus see Mayr (1941) [Mayr, 1941 #2550] and Peters (1940) [Peters, 1940 #3010], but see also Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533] and Payne (2005) [Payne, 2005 #12288].
46 For precedence of melanurus over the simultaneously published name macrourus, see Mason in Schodde & Mason (1997) [Schodde, 1997 #3523] and Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533].

101 For application of name to this species, see Mason in Schodde & Mason (1997) [Schodde, 1997 #3523].
102 White & Bruce (1986) [White, 1986 #4194] accepted two species E. scolopaceus and E. cyanocephalus with the same S Moluccan birds in both, which, however, belong in the southern group thus changing the name to orientalis, which has precedence over cyanocephalus.
103 Listed as everetti by Peters (1940) [Peters, 1940 #3010], but see White & Bruce (1986) [White, 1986 #4194].
104 For recognition see Payne (2005) [Payne, 2005 #12288].
105 For retention in monotypic genus see Payne (2005) [Payne, 2005 #12288].

Includes Rhamphomantis and Misocalius; see Payne (2005) [Payne, 2005 #12288], but see also Stephan (2005) [Stephan, 2005 #10081] and Posso & Donatelli (2006) [Posso, 2006 #10024] for recognition of Misocalius.
109 Sequence of species follows Payne (2005) ]Payne, 2005 #12288]
110 Peters (1937) [Peters, 1937 #3008] placed this in monotypic Rhamphomantis. For inclusion in Chalcites see Sorenson & Payne (2005) [Sorenson, 2005 #13793].

115 Subspecies classification broadly follows Payne (1997, 2005) [Payne, 1997 #2972] [Payne, 2005 #12288], but see Parker (1981) [Parker, 1981 #2901]. For species limits see also Ford (1982) [Ford, 1982 #1578].
116 Previously called malayanus, but this name based on female of Chrysococcyx xanthorhynchus; see Parker (1981) [Parker, 1981 #2901].
117 See Mees (2006) [Mees, 2006 #7094] for discussion of the identity of populations on Flores.
118 Population on Timor, treated as subsp.? in Dickinson (2003) following Ford (1981) and Bruce in White & Bruce (1986) [White, 1986 #4194], included in poecilurus by Payne (2005) [Payne, 2005 #12288].
119 Recognition follows Parker (1981) [Parker, 1981 #2901] and Mason in Schodde & Mason (1997) [Schodde, 1997 #3523], but see Payne (2005) [Payne, 2005 #12288]. See also Joseph et al. (2011) [Joseph, 2011 #13422].
120 For recognition see Parker (1981) [Parker, 1981 #2901] and Ford (1982) [Ford, 1982 #1578].
121 For treatment as a separate species from C. minutillus see Parker (1981) [Parker, 1981 #2901] and Higgins (1999) [Higgins, 1999 #1962]. Maintained here based on red eye and probable sympatry with forms of C. minutillus in Moluccas and west Papuan Islands recorded by Payne (2005) [Payne, 2005 #12288] although he did not treat crassirostris as a species.
122 The form salvadorii, treated as a subspecies of C. crassirostris by Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533] and as a subspecies of C. minutillus by Peters (1940) [Peters, 1940 #3010] and Payne (2005) [Payne, 2005 #12288], is not accepted here. It is based on the only known specimen from Babar (E Lesser Sundas), which Ford (1982) [Ford, 1982 #1578] has shown to be a hybrid between C. crassirostris and C. minutillus rufomerus.
123 Implicitly includes bangueyensis and limborgi Tweeddale, 1877 [Tweeddale, 1877 #3886]; see Payne (1997) [Payne, 1997 #2972].

128 For use of this name in place of C. pyrrophanus prionurus as in Peters (1940) [Peters, 1940 #3010] see Mason (1982) [Mason, 1982 #2518].
129 Resident form recognised following Payne (2005) [Payne, 2005 #12288] contra Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533].
130 Formerly treated in monotypic genus Penthoceryx as in Peters (1940) [Peters, 1940 #3010], but see Payne (1997) [Payne, 1997 #2972]. See also Stephan (2005) [Stephan, 2005 #10081] and Posso & Donatelli (2006) [Posso, 2006 #10024].

132 For treatment as a separate species from C. merulinus see Biswas (1951) [Biswas, 1951 #5833].
133 For treatment as a separate species from C. variolosus see White & Bruce (1986) [White, 1986 #4194]; but sympatry in the Moluccas was not accepted by Mees (2006) [Mees, 2006 #7094], who treated the two as subspecies groups.
134 Treated as synonym of nominate sepulcralis by Payne (2005) [Payne, 2005 #12288], but everetti is distinctively large.
135 Includes fistulator Stresemann, 1940 [Stresemann, 1940 #3764]; see White & Bruce (1986) [White, 1986 #4194].
136 Includes stresemanni; see White & Bruce (1986) [White, 1986 #4194].
137 Subspecies classification follows White & Bruce (1986) [White, 1986 #4194], who documented sympatry between C. sepulcralis and C. variolosus in the Moluccas.
138 Recognition follows Mees (2006) [Mees, 2006 #7094] with whitei Bruce, 1986 [White, 1986 #4194] as a synonym.
139 Includes oblitus and obiensis Jany, 1955 [Jany, 1955 #2108]; see White & Bruce (1986) [White, 1986 #4194]. By inference also includes obscuratus and chivae Mayr & Meyer de Schauensee, 1939 [Mayr, 1939 #2546]; see Payne (1997) [Payne, 1997 #2972].
140 Recognition follows Diamond & LeCroy (1979) [Diamond, 1979 #1320]. The identity of D'Entrecasteaux Arch. populations (prior name fortior Rothschild & Hartert, 1914) is under review.
141 Includes tabarensis Amadon, 1942 [Amadon, 1942 #4347]; see Payne (2005) [Payne, 2005 #12288].
142 Includes dumetorum; see Payne (2005) [Payne, 2005 #12288].
143 Mistakenly placed in C. variolosus infaustus by Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533]. Here not placed between C. variolosus and C. sepulcralis based on Mees (2006) [Mees, 2006 #7094].
144 Included in Cuculus by Peters (1940) [Peters, 1940 #3010] and Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533]; then transferred to Cacomantis by Payne (2005) [Payne, 2005 #12288], but deep branch separation from Cacomantis and link with New Guinean Caliechthrus supports recognition as separate genus.
145 Includes occidentalis; see Payne (1997) [Payne, 1997 #2972] and Mason in Schodde & Mason (1997) [Schodde, 1997 #3523].
146 Recognition follows Wolters (1976) [Wolters, 1976 #4259] and Payne (1997) [Payne, 1997 #2972]. Included in Cacomantis by Payne (2005) [Payne, 2005 #12288], despite strong divergence shown by Sorenson & Payne (2005) [Sorenson, 2005 #13793].
147 Considered to form a superspecies with C. montanus by Snow & Clancey in Snow (1978) [Snow, 1978 #13852].
148 Diagnosability questioned by Louette & Herroelen (1994) [Louette, 1994 #14150].
149 Includes barussarum, a name based on migrants; see Mees (1986) [Mees, 1986 #2631], but see also Payne (2005) [Payne, 2005 #12288].
150 For recognition see Rasmussen & Anderton (2005) [Rasmussen, 2005 #4749].
151 Published 20 January 1920.
152 For recognition see Wells (1999) [Wells, 1999 #4118]. The prior name barussarum is here considered a synonym of dicruroides, of which it was considered a subspecies by Payne (2005) [Payne, 2005 #12288].
153 For recent recognition see Dickinson et al. (1991) [Dickinson, 1991 #1361] and Payne (2005) [Payne, 2005 #12288].
154 Published 20 January 1920.

165 Includes fallax; see Mees (1979) [Mees, 1979 #7088] and Payne (1997) [Payne, 1997 #2972].
166 For treatment as a separate species from C. canorus see Payne (1977) [Payne, 1977 #14151].
167 For treatment as a separate species from C. saturatus see Payne (1997) [Payne, 1997 #2972] and Payne (2005) [Payne, 2005 #12288]. For applicability of name, which antedates horsfieldi, see Mason in Schodde & Mason (1997) [Schodde, 1997 #3523].
168 Mason in Schodde & Mason (1997) [Schodde, 1997 #3523] argued that this name should be attributed to Hodgson as Blyth believed the specimens to be of micropterus. However, the only description given would appear to have been written by Blyth, and it is not clear that Hodgson did more than offer a MS name.
169 Includes insulindae; see Payne (1997) [Payne, 1997 #2972]. For treatment as subspecies of C. saturatus see Becking (1975) [Becking, 1975 #244] and Wells & Becking (1975) [Wells, 1975 #4116].
