Sarayacu, Río Ucayali.
Hitherto considered conspecific with G. albirostris, but differs in its longer bill (effect size 4.39, score 2); darker upper mandible (2); richer chestnut by a shade on the breast (dark) and belly (medium) (1); crown more coppery-cerise than coppery-indigo and this colour more extensive (reaching nape) (2); (apparently previously unreported in the literature) three outer rectrices pale brown vs blackish-green (3). Closely related to and sometimes considered conspecific with G. cyanicollis, but no intergradation has been observed in zone of potential sympatry in Ucayali Valley, in NE Peru, and their populations are otherwise separated by R Amazon. Monotypic.
