Taxonomy: Paeoptera [sic] kenricki Shelley, 1894, Usambara Mountains, Tanzania.
May form a superspecies with P. stuhlmanni and has been considered conspecific. Birds from Kenya described as race bensoni, supposedly larger than those in Tanzania; overlap in measurements, however, apparently considerable, and recognition of geographical races considered unwarranted. Monotypic.
