I had anticipated this split of Superb Bird of Paradise, the females of this 
species in the Arfaks are just so different to the central and eastern birds, 
if species were described on female plumages then it would have been 
obvious-there are parallels with whistlers and wheatears, where highly distinct 
females were likewise not considered sufficient for species delimitation. It 
seems taxonomists do not rate female plumages as highly significant for some
