Zamora, Zamora-Chinchipe, Ecuador.
Previously considered conspecific with Z. albigularis (which see). Formerly included race flavidifrons, here transferred to Z. viridiflavus#R. Further vocal and genetic sampling needed to resolve status of races cumanensis (almost certainly a species based on distinctive vocalizations), the very small minimus (voice unrecorded) and three vocally distinct populations of nominate (Venezuelan Andes and Perijá Mountains; Central and Eastern Andes of Colombia and Ecuador and extreme N Peru; proposed race molestus from Western Andes of Colombia)#R. Three subspecies recognized.
