Cinnyris jugularis idenburgi
Bernhard Camp, 50 m, Idenburg River, north New Guinea.
Until recently considered conspecific with C. jugularis, but differs from all subspecies of latter (using the black-bellied forms except C. j. teysmanni for comparison) in its smaller bill and tail (allow 1); lack of yellow eyebrow in both sexes (2); bright orange vs yellow pectoral tufts in male (2); glossy bluish-black vs matt-black belly in male (2)#R. Differs from C. j. teysmanni in the first three characters above and in its lack of dull red breastband (2). Possibly parapatric with C. j. frenatus#R. Monotypic.
N New Guinea (Mamberamo R system E to Ramu R drainage).
