Subspecies boliviana has mustard yellow eyes and orange-yellow legs.
Two subspecies are recognized1:
The subspecies boliviana (living in Bolivia) is separated from the nominate subspecies by about 2500 km. A paper from 2004 describes the first systematic observations of this subspecies since its rediscovery in 2000. This subspecies has been proposed for status as a full species Phibalura boliviana (Palkachupa Cotinga)2.
The nominate form migrates seasonally between lower and higher elevation areas.
