French: Calliste étincelant
Spanish: Tangara Verde
Taxonomy: Calliste phoenicotis Bonaparte, 1851, Nanegal, Ecuador.
Although genus traditionally placed next to Tangara in linear taxonomic sequences, genetic data, together with glistening plumage, leg morphology, and voice, indicate that the two genera are not closely related. Monotypic.
Distribution: Colombia on W slope of C Andes (Antioquia) and Pacific slope of W Andes (from Risaralda) S to Ecuador (Pichincha and El Oro).
