Elliot’s Bird of Paradise was first described by Edward Ward in 1873.

It is assumed to be an intergeneric hybrid between a Black Sicklebill and Arfak Astrapia.

Even though most consider this species a hybrid, some ornithologists dispute this claim as these specimens are considerably smaller than the previously mentioned species.
