E. J. O. Hartert, 1898,
Closely related to A. kingii and A. coelestis; these three may be parapatric in parts of their ranges, but hybridization appears not to be common. Present species has been treated by several authors as a race of A. kingii, but morphological differences indicate it is probably better regarded as a separate species; female strikingly different. Has alternatively been considered a race of A. coelestis, although this would appear difficult to justify. Comprehensive research into all taxa in Aglaiocercus may, however, result in different species limits and subspecies allocations from those currently applied. Monotypic.
NE Venezuela: E coastal Cordillera de la Costa in Turimiquire Massif (both in Serranía de Turimiquire to W of San Antonio Valley and Cordillera de Caripe to E) on borders of Sucre, Anzoátegui and Monagas.
