This species and C. merlini (with C. bahamensis), C. vetula and C. longirostris were previously placed together in Saurothera, but recent molecular analysis found that genus to be embedded within Coccyzus#R. Has been considered conspecific with C. vetula and C. longirostris. Monotypic.
Puerto Rico; formerly also on nearby Vieques I#R.
