The family Campephagidae was first introduced by Nicholas Aylward Vigors (1785 – 26 October 1840), an Irish zoologist and politician, in the year 1825. The Campephagidae consists of five genera, viz., Coracina, Campochaera, Lalage, Campephaga and Pericrocotus.

The genus Lalage was first described by Friedrich Boie (4 June 1789 – 3 March 1870), a German entomologist, herpetologist, ornithologist and lawyer, in the year 1826. The genus Lalage consists of nearly 15 species. They are fairly small birds with mainly black, grey and white plumage.

The species Lalage nigra was first described (as Turdus niger) by Raymond Robert Forster, (19 June 1922 – 1 July 2000), an arachnologist and museum director, in the year 1781. The Lalage nigra is polytypic and has three subspecies, viz., L. n. davisoni, L. n. striga and L. n. nigra.
