Its upperparts and breast are a beautiful bronzy metallic green and the crown is dark blue. The male in the first photo has a white throat and belly while the female in the second photo has a buff throat and belly.
|It is found in the Amazon Basin and seems to prefer sandy-belt forest edges and particularly campina.|
