Hummingbird Atlantic Forest (Petropolis) Brazil

Hello,

Hummingbird photographed near Petropolis.
Anyone an idea?

Sapphire-spangled Emerald?

Tx again,

Greetings,

The pattern of white on the underparts is wrong for Sapphire-spangled Emerald. I think it's a Versicolored Emerald, which can show a white throat sometimes.
