A reported hybrid of present species and C. sordidus apparently refers to variation within adult male of latter. Documented hybrids with Amazilia violiceps and Eugenes fulgens suggest possible close relationship between these genera and Cynanthus. In the past and here, forms doubledayi and lawrencei treated as separate species (see those species); proposed race toroi represents specimens from zone of intergradation between propinquus and doubledayi. Racial differences mainly in male head coloration, though this may vary clinally, so number of valid races uncertain. Three subspecies recognized.
