[sic] Boddaert, 1783,
Sometimes placed in a separate genus Chrysoptilus with the other “forest flickers” C. melanochloros (with C. melanolaimus) and C. atricollis, but phylogenetic analyses indicate that placement in Colaptes more appropriate#R. Other named races are lucescens (E Darién, In Panama), often misspelt as lutescens, not reliably distinct from ujhelyii; notatus (Colombia), known only from unique type, possibly an aberrant punctipectus; and speciosus (E Peru) and rubidipectus (NE Brazil N of Amazon), both considered indistinguishable from guttatus. Six subspecies recognized.
