Recent molecular study indicated that this species occupied a basal but uncertain position in the genus#R. In the past was often treated as conspecific with V. cassini or V. affinis, but differs in plumage details, in size and in habitat preferences, apparently also vocally, and is separated from both by Andes chain. Monotypic.
