COMMENTS: Hartert gave Grauer’s field number of the holotype in the original description and said that he had collected a series at Usumbura, one on the northwest shore of Lake Tanganyika and one at Mtagata in Karagwe. Paratypes in AMNH with Grauer field numbers in parentheses are: Usumbura, AMNH 723899 View Materials (2238), male, 31 March   ; AMNH 723900 View Materials (2310), male, 9 April   ; AMNH 723901 View Materials (2246), male, 1 April   ; AMNH 723902 View Materials (2289), female, 7 April   ; AMNH 723903 View Materials (2253), female, 2 April   ; AMNH 723904 View Materials (2378), female, 16 April   ; AMNH 723905 View Materials (2188), female [male plumage], 21 March   ; AMNH 723906 View Materials (2240), female, 31 March   ; AMNH 723907 View Materials (2234) female, 30 March   ; AMNH 723908 View Materials (2203), female, 24 March, all collected in 1908. Mtagata, AMNH 723919 View Materials (289), female [male plumage] 30 May 1907.

Most recent authors have recognized graueri   as a subspecies of P. cucullatus   , but Craig (2010: 165) synonymized it with nominate cucullatus   .
