Common iora taxonomy

The species in the family Aegithinidae were formerly grouped with the leafbirds and fairy-bluebirds, in the family Irenidae. The family Aegithinidae was first described by George Robert Gray FRS (8 July 1808 – 6 May 1872), an English zoologist and head of the ornithological section of the British Museum, in 1869.

The family Aegithinidae is monotypic and contains only one genus, Aegithina. The genus Aegithina was first erected by Louis Pierre Vieillot (May 10, 1748 – August 24, 1830), a French ornithologist, in 1816.

The genus Aegithina contains four species, viz., Aegithina tiphia, Aegithina nigrolutea, Aegithina viridissima and Aegithina lafresnayei. The species Aegithina tiphia has eleven subspecies under it, viz., A. t. tiphia, A. t. scapularis, A. t. septentrionalis, A. t. viridis, A. t. humei, A. t. aequanimis, A. t. multicolor, A. t. cambodiana, A. t. philipi, A. t. horizoptera and A. t. deignani.
