Taxonomy and Systematics
Although not yet recognized as a subspecies of the pale-bellied white-eye, in 2003 a similar bird was discovered near the village of Wanci on Wangiwangi Island and provisionally named the Wangi Wangi white-eye (Zosterops sp. nov.). This island is its only known home and is part of the Tukangbesi Islands to the south-east of Sulawesi in Indonesia.
The Wangi Wangi white-eye has a number of differences from the pale-bellied white-eye including larger size, a black body, a long yellow beak, a gray breast and pale feet. Like most white-eyes it has a white ring around the eye and green upperparts.
