Campophilus [sic] splendens
Puerto Valdivia, Antioquia, Colombia.
Formerly (along with C. haematogaster) placed, with all current congeners except C. magellanicus, C. principalis and C. imperialis, in genus Phloeoceastes. Usually regarded as conspecific with C. haematogaster, but differs in having three large buff vs two mid-sized white spots on flight-feathers (apparently previously undocumented in the literature) (3); red vs black on mid-throat to upper breast on male (3); shade deeper scarlet crown (ns); buff submoustachial extends down neck side (2); generally slightly more barred and mottled underparts and back (ns); reputedly different voice#R, consisting simply of a loud “stk” rather than a loud “stk! st-kr-r-r-r-r-r-r” (at least 1). Monotypic.
