Seeholzer et al., 2012,
11.45 km WSW of mouth of Quebrada Shinipo, Cerros del Sira, Ucayali, Peru.
Sister-species of C. wallacei, the two differing genetically and in plumage and morphology. Mitochondrial DNA indicates low sequence divergence, suggesting that they have differentiated relatively recently; morphological evidence#R, however, is conclusive, fitzpatricki showing red (not yellow) flanks (3), broader breastband (a plumage character, not a morphometric one; effect size 3.335, score 2), deeper bill (effect size 3.744, score 2), and black vs grey outer thigh feathers (1). Monotypic.
E slope of S Cerros del Sira (Ucayali), in EC Peru.
