Audebert and Vieillot, 1801,
Hitherto treated as conspecific with A. dominicus, but differs on account of (in male) blue-black not covering all of underparts below throat but just breast to mid-belly, with flanks green and lower central underparts to vent dark brownish-grey (3); (in male) central rectrices bronzy green vs glossy blackish-blue (2); (in female) outer tail dull brownish-grey, shading to darker subterminal tips and white tips vs violaceous-rufous, cutting sharply to blackish broad subterminal tips and white tips (3); markedly smaller size, although bill length virtually identical (effect size for wing –4.15, tail –5.63; score 3). Monotypic.
