Nectarinea [sic] Ludovicensis
Biballa, Namibe, Angola.
Sometimes treated as conspecific with C. stuhlmanni and/or C. prigoginei; has been considered conspecific also with C. afer, and is closely related to C. reichenowi. Races geographically isolated from each other; possibly represent separate species. Newly described taxon skye#R apparently sister to geographically close race whytei, from which it differs in several plumage characters, longer tarsus, and ecology (restricted to forest–grassland ecotone); these forms may represent two full species, but further study, including of vocalizations, required. Three subspecies recognized.
