Gray-tailed Mountain-gem

Lampornis cinereicauda (Lawrence, 1867)

The Grey-tailed Mountaingem or Gray-tailed Mountaingem (Lampornis castaneoventris cinereicauda) is a hummingbird which breeds only in the mountains of southern Costa Rica. According to recent studies (García-Moreno et al., 2006) it is a subspecies of the White-throated Mountaingem, but potentially about to become a distinct species, a process already completed by its relative, the Purple-throated Mountaingem L. calolaema.
