George Robert Gray of the British Museum named this species in honor of Alfred Russel Wallace, British naturalist and author of The Malay Archipelago, who discovered the bird in 1858. Following its original discovery, the Standardwing wasn't seen again for nearly 60 years, and then only a handful of times until 1953. No further sightings were reported until the British ornithologist David Bishop rediscovered the species in 1983 and began making the first detailed observations of its behaviour.

The Standardwing is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

"Real war" was a phrase used by a Dutchman we met later in Sulawesi when referring to the religious conflict on Halmahera. More
