São Paulo de Olivença, Rio Solimões, west Amazonas, Brazil.
Taxonomy complex and poorly understood: NW populations (velutina, minuscula) may represent a separate species; populations E of Andes of two distinct types, with males black-bodied in N (caquetae, carbonata, nominate) and green-bodied in S (exquisita, caelestipileata, regalis), and apparently intermediate populations in W Amazonia (S of Amazon in N Peru and W Brazil). Recent work on genetics and vocalizations remains inconclusive#R. Name exquisita pre-dates caelestipileata by at least two (probably 8–9) months#R. Eight subspecies recognized.
