Makira Harbour, Makira, Solomons.
Until recently considered a race of C. lepidus (which see), but molecular analysis suggests species status#R and this is supported by morphological evidence: present species differs from all other taxa formerly grouped under Variable Dwarf-kingfisher in its all-white underparts and white loral spot (4); relatively prominent black breast sides (1); pale orange vs coral-red (or in meeki pale yellow) feet (2). Monotypic.
Makira (San Cristobal), in E Solomons.
