Salvin and Elliot, 1873,
Possibly closely related to L. brachylophus and L. delattrei. Described form L. insignibarbis, known from single Bogotá trade skin and sometimes awarded monospecific genus Lithiophanes, may be a hybrid of present species and L. verreauxii, although characters apparently do not fit precisely with either. Monotypic.
W Venezuela (W Coastal Range; locally in Andes) S through E Colombia and E Ecuador to N Peru (Marañón Valley).
