|Taxonomic Notes :||The taxonomy of the Zoothera dauma complex of taxa is uncertain, and various treatments have been suggested. Here we currently retain the forms aurea and toratugumi as subspecies of Zoothera dauma, but have made some attempt to label to subspecies. We cannot, however, guarantee that these are 100% correct since differentiation from photographs can be difficult.
The form imbricata is here treated as a distinct species Sri Lanka Thrush Zoothera (d.) imbricata and the form major as Amami Thrush Zoothera (d.) major.
