Mt Morrison, 9000 ft [c. 2740 m], Taiwan.
Until recently considered conspecific with C. vinaceus, but strong genetic divergence suggested two species involved#R#R; this found to be tenable, as present species differs in its overall slightly brighter red male (1); slightly more white in tertials in male (1); slightly heavier breast streaking in female (1); fractionally darker belly in female (ns); overall larger size with significantly longer tail (effect size 9.8, score 3); and very brief “zip” call slightly longer (1) and higher-pitched (1). Song of C. vinaceus apparently unrecorded for comparison. Monotypic.
