Beautiful aquamarine tanager with rufous mask. Several shades of blue on body: back is darker aquamarine, underparts mostly turquoise, belly cream, and undertail cinnamon. Sexes similar. Uncommon, often alone but also in small groups and mixed species flocks foraging in canopy or mid-levels. Occurs at low to high elevations in cloud forest and edges, but most often at middle elevations. Similar to other small tanagers, but color patterns distinctive. Endemic to the Coastal Cordillera of Venezuela.
