H. Bryant, 1864,
Nassau, New Providence Island, Bahamas.
Hitherto treated as subspecies of C. merlini, but differs in absence of rufous wingpanel, since outer vanes of primaries are concolorous with wing and all upperparts, although inner vanes are rufous and show up in flight (3); black tip of uppertail (2); and (by comparison with decolor from I of Pines, which most closely resembles bahamensis in lacking rufous tone to upperparts) purer grey on breast and paler rufous on lower underparts (2). Population of Andros has sometimes been separated as race andria (occasionally misspelt andrina). Monotypic.
Bahama Is: Andros, New Providence and Eleuthera.
