Note that "Ficedula beijingnica", which was at one time regarded as a separate species called Beijing (or Peking) Flycatcher, is now considered to be the first-summer male of F. (n.) elisae and no longer a valid independent taxon.
The subspecies owstoni is sometimes treated as a separate species Ryukyu Flycatcher Ficedula (n.) owstoni.
