 Comments
       
  Comment: Status: IUCN 2003 - not evaluated; not considered in IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001)  
    Comments: Distinct from adversus and macropus; see Kitchener et al. (1995b), who revised this complex. Also see Flannery (1995b) and Bonaccorso (1998). Includes Anamygdon solomonis Troughton, 1929; see Phillips and Birney (1968) and Kitchener et al. (1995b). Kitchener et al. (1995b) tentatively retained solomonis as a synonym of M. moluccarum moluccarum, but morphological differences suggest that it is best considered as a distinct subspecies
