Sholicola albiventris Blanford, 1868 – White-bellied Sholakili

Taxonomic Notes:

This has in the past been known as the White-bellied Blue Robin (S. albiventris) and Rufous-bellied Shortwing/Nilgiri Shortwing/Nilgiri Blue Robin (S. major) that occur south and north of the Palghat Gap, respectively. A new genus, Sholicola, has also been recently proposed to circumscribe major, albiventris and ashambuensis (in Ashambu Hills of southern Kerala) as three distinct species (Robin et al. 2017).
