White-chested Emerald

Amazilia brevirostris (Lesson, 1830)

The White-chested Emerald (Amazilia brevirostris) is a hummingbird found in eastern Venezuela, the Guianas, Trinidad and far northern Brazil (Roraima). It has sometimes been placed in the genus Agyrtria, and the name A. chionopectus was formerly used for this species, as the name A. brevirostris was believed to be applicable to the Versicolored Emerald. While most current authorities maintain the view that A. brevirostris is the correct name for the White-chested Emerald, it has recently been suggested that this is incorrect, in which case its scientific name would revert to A. chionopectus.
