Sometimes placed in genus Saucerottia. Closely related to A. saucerottei. A certain amount of taxonomic confusion has resulted mainly from occurrence of differing phenotypes. Previously included A. alfaroana. A melanistic variety formerly called “Eriocnemis incultus” or “A. nunezi” refers to present species; the specimens concerned have also been erroneously considered aberrant individuals of A. viridigaster. Monotypic.
