Trochilus (——?) floriceps
Sierra de Santa Marta, Colombia.
Two subspecies recognized. The ranges of the two subspecies are separated by > 900 km, and, coupled with differences in plumage, molecular and nuclear DNA sequence data (from a small sample size), and climatic niche (revealed by niche modelling), it is suggested that they are full species, and should at least be regarded as evolutionarily significant units#R.
