Taxonomic Swap 116223 (Guardado el 30/10/2022)

Ryukyu Robin is split into two species, based primarily on deep genetic divergence (as assessed by mitochondrial DNA: Saitoh et al. 2015), coupled with preliminary evidence of vocal differences (Boesman 2016t): Ryukyu Robin Larvivora komadori and Okinawa Robin Larvivora namiyei.

Subspecies subrufus, with range “S Ryukyu Islands (Ishigaki, Iriomote and Yonaguni)”, is considered to be a junior synonym of nominate komadori (Vaurie 1955, Kawaji and Higuchi 1989), and is deleted; revise the range from “Ryukyu Is. (Tanega-Shima, Amami-O-Shima, Tokuno-Shima)” to “breeds Danjo Islands (off of southwestern Kyushu) and the northern Ryukyu Islands (Tanegashima S to Tokunoshima); winters south to the southern Ryukyu Islands (mainly Miyako, Ishigaki, Iriomote and Yonakuni)”.
