Sometimes considered conspecific with T. viridis (and T. chionurus); genetic data indicate that these two form a sister-group to T. melanocephalus and T. citreolus#R. Sometimes considered conspecific with T. chionurus alone; habits and vocalizations rather similar, differs in pinkish-red vs yellow belly in both sexes (3); undertail (three outer rectrices) of female black with narrow bars vs thickly barred black and white with long white tips (3); and barring of wing-coverts in female bolder and more widely spaced (2). Monotypic.
Pacific slope of Costa Rica (N to around Río Grande de Tárcoles) and adjacent SW Panama (W Chiriquí).
