Lectotype: AMS I.881. Paralectotypes: MCZ 27552 [ex AMS] (5). Appeared first in Ogilby 1887:1061 [ref. 27564] but perhaps not diagnostic, the only character mentioned being the "curius black lobe on each side of the tongue."

Lectotype selected by Gon & Allen 2012:60 [ref. 31960]; they regard MCZ 27552 (5) as S. cephalotes. •Valid as Siphamia roseigaster (Ramsay & Ogilby 1887)[sometimes as Ogilby 1886] -- (Allen & Swainston 1988:64 [ref. 25477], Paxton et al. 1989:558 [ref. 12442], Kuiter 1993:153 [ref. 23929], Allen 1997:100 [ref. 23977], Larson & Williams 1997:357 [ref. 23967], Allen 1999:2608 [ref. 24812], Johnson 1999:733 [ref. 25471] as rosiegaster, Allen et al. 2006:1108 [ref. 29004], Gon & Allen 2012:60 [ref. 31960], Larson et al. 2013:114 [ref. 32988] as rosiegaster, Mabuchi et al. 2014:201 [ref. 33426], Fraser & Prokofiev 2016:229 [ref. 34742], Kuiter & Kozawa 2019:143 [ref. 36965], Pogonoski et al. 2020:384 [ref. 37466]).
