[sic] DeLattre and Bourcier, 1846,
Sometimes placed in genus Saucerottia. Closely related to A. cyanifrons. Proposed race australis described from small series of specimens from Guaítara Valley (SW Colombia) on basis of morphometric differences from nominate; strong clinal variation within larger series of nominate birds, however, indicates that it should not be retained. Remarkably isolated race hoffmanni sometimes considered to represent a distinct species on basis of behaviour and voice, in addition to distribution; this taxon formerly listed as S. sophiae. Specific name originally spelt “saucerrottei” but emended on basis of internal evidence#R. Four subspecies recognized.
