Ambokarra, Shoa Province, Ethiopia.
Formerly treated as conspecific with C. xantholaema; both have been treated as conspecific with C. atrogularis. Geographical variation of C. xantholaema problematic and insufficiently known, and position further confused by population on Mt Fantalle (C Ethiopia) with intermediate characters between latter and present species. Present taxon once thought to be a synonym of C. xanthopygia (a hypothesis recently postulated afresh)#R or even a hybrid between latter and C. dorsostriata. Species status upheld pending further research, including genetic analysis. Monotypic.
