G. R. Graves, 1980,
Cerro Chinguela, c. 5 km north-east of Sapalache, Piura, Peru.
Thought to be closely related to M. williami, M. baroni, M. theresiae, M. eupogon and M. aeneocauda; recently recorded as occurring sympatrically with M. williami atrigularis in Podocarpus National Park (S Ecuador). Sometimes considered to be a race of M. eupogon, but differences in coloration justify their treatment as separate species. Monotypic.
S Ecuador (S Loja and Zamora-Chinchipe) and adjacent N Peru (NE Piura and Cajamarca).
