Other common names: Common/Eurasian Hoopoe; African Hoopoe (subspecies africana); Madagascar Hoopoe (subspecies marginata); Ceylon/Indian Hoopoe (subspecies ceylonensis). Madagascan form marginata widely treated as a separate species on basis mainly of distinctive territorial call. Race africana also considered a full species by some, based on varying amounts of white in wing, and other minor differences of colour pattern (possibly also between sexes), but linked to race senegalensis by intermediate race waibeli. Races saturata and ceylonensis intergrade with nominate. NW Indian Subcontinent population sometimes separated as race orientalis, but now generally regarded as inseparable from nominate; paler birds in S & E South Africa sometimes separated as race minor, but validity requires confirmation. Nine subspecies currently recognized.)
