Taxonomy and systematics
The satin flycatcher was originally described in the genus Platyrhynchos. Alternate names include satin Myiagra and satin Myiagra-flycatcher.
Males are dark grey on their beak, eyes, legs and upper body with a white lower body. Females differ from males by having a more grayish upper body and light orange around their throat.
The satin flycatcher breeds from October - February. 2 or 3 greenish blue with brown spotted eggs will be laid in a neat nest made of bark, spider's web and moss on a branch 5 – 25 m high.
