no locality = near Bogotá, Colombia.
Hitherto considered conspecific with C. atriceps, but differs in its black crown with fine crimson streaking either throughout (in male) or on hindcrown (in female) vs pure black crown (2); crimson vs golden-buff edging of scaly breast feathers (2); more crimson and less golden-olive in secondaries and wing-coverts (2); longer bill (effect size 2.66, score 2); different song, quite different from “descending low churr” of atriceps#R (at least 2). Both were previously placed in Piculus, but recent phylogenetic analyses indicate that placement in Colaptes is more appropriate#R. Races rather poorly differentiated. Five subspecies currently recognized.
