P. L. Sclater, 1890,
Esmeraldas, western Ecuador.
Sometimes placed in genus Bucco. Usually considered conspecific with N. tectus, but differs in somewhat smaller bill and wings (effect size for wings 2.93, subscore 2) yet slightly longer tail (effect size 0.46, subscore 0) (total 2); much narrower breastband (effect size 5.2; score 3); generally fewer spots on crown (because restricted to forecrown and mid-crown vs covering all crown), but variable, with some overlap (1); supposedly greyer flanks (not apparent in museum samples; ns); and (on basis of several independent recordings of each form) higher-pitched and possibly more piping, less modulated song (at least 1). Monotypic.
