Coeligena torquata eisenmanni
Relationships uncertain within the complex containing C. conradii, C. torquata, present species and C. inca (also relationship to C. prunellei and C. wilsoni); further studies needed (see also under C. torquata). Hitherto considered conspecific with C. torquata, but differs on account of black hood in male (3); coppery uppertail-coverts in male (2); bronzy-green vs bottle-green central rectrices (ns); strong buffy and largely plain throat in female (2); and more white on rectrices of female, reaching to tip on inner webs (ns). Monotypic.
S Peru (Cordillera Vilcabamba).
