Has anyone noticed that the latest IOC list, version 7.1, has split Red-bellied Pitta, Erythropitta erythrogaster? The common name for Red-bellied Pitta has disappeared. The scientific name now belongs to Phillipine Pitta and the bird in Australia is now the Papuan Pitta, Erythropitta macklotii (sub-species digglesi).
