Robbins et al., 1994,
Cerro Mongus, Carchi, Ecuador.
Sometimes considered conspecific with D. sclateri, but differs (in male) in its more extensive dirty grey breast (2); rufous-chestnut belly to vent vs greyish-tawny belly and rufous vent (3); darker grey face and throat (1); also larger size (effect size for tail based on published data#R 2.5, score 2). Treatment as separate species also supported by genetic data#R. Monotypic.
Locally in C Andes of Colombia (Quindío) and E Andes of Ecuador (SE Carchi to Zamora-Chinchipe); no records but likely to occur in N Peru#R.
