Jardine and Fraser, 1852,
#R, Malabo, Bioko.
See A. gabonicus. Usually considered conspecific with A. rectirostris but occasional attribution of species rank supported here, based on smallish grey vs larger lemon-yellow chin and throat (3); broad vs narrow metallic green upper breastband (1); greyer, less pale yellow belly (2); longer bill (effect size 3.09, score 2). Proposed race amadoni (from Rumpi Hills, in W Cameroon) considered insufficiently distinct, differing from present taxon only in slightly smaller size. Monotypic.
SE Benin and S Nigeria E, including Bioko, to S Central African Republic, DRCongo, S Uganda and W Kenya, S to NW Angola and NW Tanzania; also S South Sudan (Imatong Mts).
