Some taxonomic confusion with P. plumbea; race bogotensis of P. plumbea previously applied to present species, embracing Amazonian populations from Colombia S to Bolivia; validity and ranges of several subspecies unclear#R. Races berlepschi and purpureotincta have both been considered distinct species#R. Nine subspecies tentatively recognized.
