Arfak Mountains, New Guinea.
Hitherto considered conspecific with A. johannae, but here separated on account of rather greyer belly (with resultant dark brownish lower breastband) vs dark brownish below pale grey breast (2); dull dark green vs dull dark chestnut upperparts (3); (green-shot) grey of crown and neck-sides cutting to dull dark green on mantle, vs the (darker) grey of crown and neck-sides extending onto mantle (2); white eyering much narrower (ns); purplish vs red legs (fide labels in NHMUK) (ns). Affinities unclear: with A. johannae may be most closely related to A. canifrons, and these three appear to be related to the A. jobiensis complex; alternatively, may be related to A. sanctaecrucis and A. stairi, and more distantly to A. hoedtii and A. canifrons. Monotypic.
