Taxonomy: Corvus florensis Büttikofer, 1894, Maumere, Flores, Lesser Sundas.
Sometimes placed in a separate genus, Nesocorax. Relationships uncertain; perhaps an ancient derivative of the "C. enca complex", but differs fundamentally in bill structure and plumage texture. Possibly nearest to C. typicus and C. unicolor. Monotypic.
