    (aka Chrysuronia versicolor)

    Brazilian name: beija-flor-de-banda-branca


    The Versicolored Emerald is found in the Amazon Basin in Colombia, Venezuela, Bolivia and Brazil but in small, disjunct areas. It is also found in north-east Brazil and in central and eastern Brazil. See the distribution map at xeno-canto. There are 5 sub-species and these photos, taken in the Chapada Diamantina of Bahia and at Ubatuba, show the nominate form. ...

     VERSICOLOURED EMERALD Amazilia versicolor

    ... For the most part it is a drab, greenish individual, but if the light catches it at the right angle, blue spangles flash like disco lights on the sides of its breast. The Emerald is a humid forest species, though it looks essentially like the females of many other hummingbirds. They are very variable in plumage, and two colour forms, the white-bellied Amazilia "brevirostris" and green-bellied Amazilia "affinis" have recently been proposed as distinct species in a series of papers by Chebez et al. ...

     The versicoloured emerald (Chrysuronia versicolor) is a species of hummingbird from central and eastern South America.


    The taxonomy is very complex and remains a matter of dispute. The nominate subspecies (C. v. versicolor) occurs in two main morphs; a white-throated coastal type and a green/turquoise-throated inland type.[3] At some localities individuals with intermediate features are commonly seen, but at others the two morphs seemingly co-occur without signs of intergradation. The coastal morph was formerly known as C. brevirostris, but a review lead to this name being considered to belong to the white-chested emerald of northern South America.[3] Recently, it has been suggested that the coastal type should remain as C. brevirostris,[4] but this has been disputed,[5] and has yet to gain wide recognition. ...

     ... This species was formerly placed in the genus Amazilia. A molecular phylogenetic study published in 2014 found that Amazilia was polyphyletic.[8] In the revised classification to create monophyletic genera, the versicoloured emerald was moved to Chrysuronia.[9][10] ...
