Confused taxonomic history: until recently known as P. perlata, but that name is actually applicable to form long known as P. rhodogaster; present species consequently assumes its next oldest name, P. lepida. Forms a parapatric species-pair with P. perlata, with which sometimes considered conspecific; recent molecular phylogeny indicated that closest relatives of these two are P. frontalis and P. molinae#R. Three subspecies recognized.
A feral population (unknown subspecies) exists in Pernambuco, NE Brazil#R.
