Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Population of C Chile, once known as byroni, renamed bloxami following realization that name byroni is referable to (and synonym of) Enicognathus leptorhynchus. Form andinus possesses a smudged grey-brown breast and belly, with little or no white scaly breastband, but some individuals show moderately clear-cut division between dusky breast and yellow flanks, and others show slight white scaling at breast sides, very like some nominate patagonus; thus andinus remains a moderately distinctive subspecies of C. patagonus, as supported by recent molecular analysis#R. Form bloxami also relatively distinctive, being large, heavier-billed, generally darker and with larger pale creamy patches on breast sides. Described form C. whitleyi, in the past treated as valid species, now thought to be probably aviary hybrid between present species and large Aratinga species or Primolius. Four subspecies recognized.
