Form pulsatrix treated as a separate, monotypic species by some recent authors#R#R, albeit not in recent world checklist#R, on basis of slightly larger size, “different vocalisations and very different plumage” and, although not clear where, “because the two overlap locally without hybridisation”; vocal differences, however, appear slight, and morphological ones difficult to gauge from limited material seen. Races chapmani, trinitatis and boliviana poorly differentiated, perhaps not valid. Six subspecies currently recognized.
