There are 2 subspecies:

- M. s. flavovirens:
Moist montane forests, forest edges; dense undergrowth along streamsides, at heights from 1500 to 3050 m, though generally above 1800m.
There's not a lot of information available. It is thought they eat mostly on invertebrates, foraging near the ground in the understorey. They will sometimes flycatch.
