Pyrrhura subandina caeruleiceps
El Cauca, Norte de Santander, Colombia.
Part of the P. picta–leucotis complex (see P. picta). Differs from geographically adjacent P. subandina in its whitish iris (3), blue forehead and nape (3), white ear-coverts (3) and red carpal (ns); differs from N Venezuelan P. emma in its whitish iris (3) less extensive and paler brown face (2), less barred (more chevroned), broader-edged breast pattern, without two-toned effect (buff above, mustard below) (3), and bluer (less green) crown and nape (ns); differs from P. picta in its whitish iris (3), more extensive and brighter maroon on face (2), more extensive blue on nape and collar (2), whiter ear-coverts (ns). Races very poorly differentiated; species perhaps better treated as monotypic. Two subspecies tentatively recognized.
