San Francisco, California, USA.
Closely related to S. rufus, being very close genetically (less than 1% mtDNA#R) and morphologically (“barely distinguishable”#R), but differs by its green vs (in most individuals) all-rufous upperparts in male (1; score reduced owing to individual variation); longer tail#R (effect size 3.6, score 2); different display-flight pattern and resulting sounds#R, latter presumably in part related to broader tips to male’s outer rectrices (3); very narrow hybrid zone (2). Described form S. floresii usually reckoned to be hybrid of present species with Calypte anna. Two subspecies recognized.
