Sapphire spangled emerald? South East Brazil (1 Viewer)


Well-known member

I believe this to be a female Sapphire-spangled Emerald, but struggling to completely eliminate Glittering throated emerald, may even be other options I've not considered.

Would appreciate input from anyone with experience of these species.

Thanks in advance

After a long Google search between the two species you mentioned I think I go along with the Sapphire-spangled Emerald but never seeing either I may well be wrong.
