Lesson and DeLattre, 1839,
Andes of Peru.
Differences in body size and plumage colours have been detected between populations in N Peru and C Peru, but specimens from linking areas require study before division into two races can be considered. Treated as monotypic.
Andes of Peru: Pacific slope from S Cajamarca to Tacna; in N Peru E of R Marañón, with single record from W (Jalca de Soquian); and also in C Peru (intermontane valleys in Huánuco, Pasco, Junín). Possibly extends into extreme N Chile (recent records from very close to border in Peru)#R; two old specimens supposedly from Bolivia.
