1 Sequence of genera and species derived from Barrowclough et al. (2006) [Barrowclough, 2006 #9507] and Han et al. (2010) [Han, 2010 #12019].
2 For treatment as a species in its own genus rather than as a subspecies of Podargus ocellatus, see Cleere et al. (2007) [Cleere, 2007 #998].
3 For recognition see Schodde & Mason (1980) [Schodde, 1980 #3509].
4 Subspecies recognition follows Schodde & Mason (1980) [Schodde, 1980 #3509] and Schodde in Schodde & Mason (1997) [Schodde, 1997 #3523]. But see also Holyoak (2001) [Holyoak, 2001 #1992].
5 For recognition of this and baileyi see Schodde in Schodde & Mason (1997) [Schodde, 1997 #3523].
6 Subspecies recognition follows Ford (1986) [Ford, 1986 #1582] and Schodde & Mason (1997) [Schodde, 1997 #3523].
7 Includes victoriae, cornwalli and cuvieri; see Schodde in Schodde & Mason (1997) [Schodde, 1997 #3523].
8 See Dickinson et al. (2009) [Dickinson, 2009 #12163] and Schodde (2009) [Schodde, 2009 #13596] for opposing views on whether two names constitute two spellings in the sense of Art. 24.2.2 of the Code (I.C.Z.N., 1999) [I.C.Z.N., 1999 #2059] and whether Art. 32.5.1.1 applies. See our Appendix 2.5.
9 Includes gouldi and, later, lilae Deignan, 1951 [Deignan, 1951 #1217]; see Schodde in Schodde & Mason (1997) [Schodde, 1997 #3523]. But see Higgins (1999) [Higgins, 1999 #1962], Holyoak (2001) [Holyoak, 2001 #1992] and Cleere (2010) [Cleere, 2010 #14055].
10 We consider Gray used a MS name from Vigors. For an alternative view see Bruce (2003) [Bruce, 2003 #552].
11 Name roonwali Dutta, 2009 [Dutta, 2009 #12490] proposed for the SW Indian population; see Appendix 2.2.
12 Includes rupchandi Koelz, 1954 [Koelz, 1954 #2250]; see Ripley (1982) [Ripley, 1982 #3332].
13 Not recognised by Holyoak (2001) [Holyoak, 2001 #1992].
14 May merit recognition as a separate species (Peters 1940) [Peters, 1940 #3010], and was so treated by Marshall (1978) [Marshall, 1978 #2501].
15 For comments on why affinis was at times treated as a separate species see Marshall (1978) [Marshall, 1978 #2501]; but see also Wells (1999) [Wells, 1999 #4118].
16 Sometimes submerged in nominate javensis e.g. by Holyoak (2001) [Holyoak, 2001 #1992], but Marshall (1978) [Marshall, 1978 #2501], thought birds of this population matched affinis.
17 Includes Batrachostomus pygmaeus Alviola, 1997 [Alviola, 1997 #69]; see Holyoak (1999) [Holyoak, 1999 #1991].
18 For conservation of this name see Opinion 2275 (I.C.Z.N., 2011) [I.C.Z.N., 2011 #12807].
