Arses is a genus of monarch flycatchers in the family Monarchidae. The genus is restricted to forest and second growth on the island of New Guinea, a few surrounding islands and northern Queensland, Australia. The genus is separated by their frilled necks, fleshy blue eye wattles and delicate pendent nests. They also have a distinctive foraging technique, hopping up tree trunks in a spiral fashion.
Taxonomy

The genus Arses was introduced by the French naturalist René Lesson in 1831.[1] The type species was subsequently designated as the frilled monarch (Arses telescopthalmus) by English zoologist George Robert Gray in 1840.[2] The genus name is from the Persian king Arses who ruled from 338 until 336 BC.[3]

The genus contains four species:[4]

Ochre-collared monarch (Arses insularis)
Frilled monarch (Arses telescopthalmus)
Frill-necked monarch (Arses lorealis)
Pied monarch (Arses kaupi)
