J. H. C. F. Sturm and J. W. Sturm#R, 1841,
Chanchamayo, Andes of Peru.
Until recently, considered conspecific with A. prasinus along with A. wagleri, A. caeruleogularis, A. albivitta and A. cyanolaemus, but differs from all taxa in the complex by virtue of its sharply demarcated black throat and subocular area (3); yellow upper and white lower “jaw-band” (line between face and bill), the yellow being distinctively different (noted on two specimen labels, and still visible on all skins) (2); yellow or white continuation of this jaw-band over the top of the bill, forming a distinctive pattern of yellow-black-yellow at the base of the culmen (2). Sometimes thought to include A. cyanolaemus as a race#R, but differs in characters enumerated under that species. Two subspecies currently recognized.
