Taxonomy: Urospizias melanochlamys Salvadori, 1875, Arfak Mountains, New Guinea.
Forms superspecies with A. albogularis, A. haplochrous and A. rufitorques. Two poorly defined races, doubtfully valid and not recognized by some authorities: eastern birds paler dorsally; differences possibly confounded by sexual characters or plumage wear of specimens. Two subspecies normally recognized.
