P. L. Sclater, 1883,
Until recently, considered conspecific with L. atrovirens and L. leucoptera, but differs from both in its white lores and preocular supercilium (3); female with male-like plumage (i.e. equally dark above and with no barring below) (3); considerably more white in outer tail (2). Differs further from leucoptera in its white rump and white-scaled uppertail-coverts (3; in which case score for outer tail dropped); it may also have shorter wings and tail but a longer bill (better sample size needed). Monotypic.
