Acapulco, Guerrero, Mexico.
Closely related to A. yucatanensis, but not, as claimed, to A. tzacatl and A. amazilia alticola. Formerly listed as A. cinnamomea, but this name was unavailable. Race graysoni sometimes considered a separate species, being considerably larger than other subspecies (estimated 3) and slightly darker and duskier (1). Validity of race diluta has been doubted because of intergradation towards nominate. Name saturata is a synonym of corallirostris. Described form A. bangsi, known from a single Costa Rican specimen, is a hybrid of present species and A. tzacatl. Populations from Yucatán, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica, formerly attributed to nominate, are more appropriately placed in corallirostris on basis of morphology. Four subspecies recognized.
