P. L. Sclater and Salvin, 1876,
Hitherto considered conspecific with C. rivolii, but differs in its pure black crown vs black crown with fine crimson streaking (either throughout in male, or on hindcrown in female) (2); golden-buff vs crimson edging of scaly breast feathers (2); less crimson and more golden-olive in secondaries and wing-coverts (2); shorter bill (effect size −2.66, score 2); different song, a “descending low churr, quite different from that of brevirostris”#R (at least 2). Both were previously placed in Piculus, but recent phylogenetic analyses indicate that placement in Colaptes is more appropriate#R.Monotypic.
