Closely related to C. geoffroyi. Some races described from very small samples, and supposed differences may be due to individual, not subspecific, variation; birds of N & C Peru may be more properly ascribed to nominate race, but in any case race inca, at least, appears doubtfully valid. Some authorities prefer to treat this species as monotypic#R. Six subspecies currently recognized.
