Malabar barbet taxonomy

The family Megalaimidae was first described by Edward Blyth (23 December 1810 – 27 December 1873), an English zoologist, in the year 1852.

The family Megalaimidae, earlier comprised genera Caloramphus, Megalaima and Psilopogon. Since Megalaima and Psilopogon appear similar, these genera were clubbed together. As genus Psilopogon was described and erected earlier than Megalaima, all the species were brought under Psilopogon.

The Megalaimidae comprises subfamily Megalaiminae and subfamily Caloramphinae. The subfamily Megalaiminae is monotypic and comprises genus Psilopogon. The subfamily Caloramphinae is again monotypic and comprises genus Caloramphus.

The genus Psilopogon is classified into 32 species. The species Psilopogon malabaricus was first introduced (as Bucco malabaricus) by Edward Blyth in the year 1847.
