Capito steerii, 1878,
Hitherto considered conspecific with E. glaucogularis and E. versicolor, but differs from former in male’s yellow (continuous with submoustachial area and breast) vs broad pale blue lower throat patch (3), lack of golden-yellow line bordering lower edge of blue throatband (2), and darker and rather broader blue hindcollar line, merging more gently into bluer green upperparts (2); and from latter in having yellow (vs pale blue) submoustachial area (3), small (vs large) red patch under bill, covering chin only and thus not forming red lower border to submoustachial area, and not bordered below by a pale blue line (3), and darker and rather broader blue hindcollar line merging more broadly into bluer-green upperparts (2). Monotypic.
N Peru from WC Amazonas S to N Huánuco.
