Small tanager found in Andean subtropical zone from Colombia to Peru. Unique seafoam green color, often appearing fairly dull. Greener than Golden-naped Tanager and lacks the spangled appearance of Beryl-spangled Tanager. Also note small black mask, black nape, and black wings with thin green edges. Buffy undertail coverts and vent only visible at some angles. Sexes alike. A fairly common member of mixed flocks from around 1,300–2,300 m, in cloud forest and edges.
