“Santa-Fe de Bogota”.
Suggested perhaps to be sister of D. anabatina, but genetic study suggests otherwise#R. Race hellmayri only marginally distinct. Purported race macrorhyncha, described on basis of two specimens from E slope in N Ecuador and sometimes treated as a separate species, appears to involve aberrant individuals (larger, longer-billed, lighter and more olivaceous plumage, pale throat more conspicuous) of nominate race. Proposed race brunnea (W Ecuador) inseparable from nominate. Two subspecies recognized.
