Found in the three ranges of Colombia.

Los machos presentan una coloracion azul-violeta en su corona mientras que la hembra lo tiene solo verde. Este colibrí de tierras altas se encuentra en las tres cordilleras y es el único que presenta coloración totalmente blanca en sus partes inferiores. Las hembras lo tienen blanco pero punteado. Su rabadilla es un color cobrizo. Se lo encuentra solitario y gregario cuando se alimenta junto con otros colibríes. Habita en zonas boscosas y se alimenta de néctar e insectos.
