Medium-sized sunbird with strikingly different male and female plumages. Males have a green head and back, a purple-and-maroon band across the breast, a white belly, and yellow-orange shoulder tufts that are usually hidden. Females are very plain brown, with a paler belly. Found very locally in miombo broadleaf woodland. Very similar to White-bellied Sunbird, but male distinguished by broader purplish breast band, yellow-orange shoulder tufts, and blackish markings on the iridescent green of the face. Female darker and less marked than female White-bellied Sunbird.
