A comparison of plumage characteristics between grey-sided flowerpeckers (Dicaeum celebicum) from mainland Sulawesi (top) and Wakatobi flowerpeckers (Dicaeum kuehni) from the Wakatobi archipelago (bottom); male flowerpeckers are on the left and females on the right. The Wakatobi flowerpecker was long considered a subspecies of the grey-sided flowerpecker, but it was reclassified in 2014.Photograph: Seán B. A. Kelly, David J.
