French: Tohi de Terborgh
Spanish: Atlapetes de Vilcabamba
Taxonomy: Atlapetes terborghi Remsen, 1993, Cordillera Vilcabamba, Cuzco, Peru.
Often considered a race of A. latinuchus, and both were originally considered part of a wider complex that included also A. melanolaemus and A. rufinucha, although recent studies suggest that various components of this group may not be each other’s closest relatives. Present species likely most closely related to A. melanolaemus. Monotypic.
Distribution: Cordillera Vilcabamba (W Cuzco), in S Peru.
