Arfak, New Guinea.
Hitherto treated as conspecific with C. stellae, but differs in its hindcrown pattern, involving narrow glossy grey-blue band backed by twice-as-wide black band, then red nuchal band (continuous with red of rest of head) backed by a second, narrower black band on lower nape (which, unlike equivalent area in the other taxa, does not connect to eye) vs broad bright glossy blue band backed by broad black nuchal band (3); yellow patches on breast sides and flanks (3); blue central line down rump vs blue patch on lower rump (ns); no yellow rump in female (3). This split advocated in earlier study, similarly on basis of plumage characters#R. Monotypic.
NW New Guinea (mountains of Vogelkop Peninsula).
