The taxonomy of this species and the long-tailed hermit is confusing. Most taxa previously consider subspecies of the latter (insolitus, moorei, ochraceiventris, bolivianus and margarettae) are now considered subspecies of the former. A satisfactory taxonomic treatment of the entire P. longirostris/P. superciliosus/P. malaris group is still lacking according to some Neotropical ornithologists. [1] Additionally, the taxon margarettae of the Atlantic Forest of eastern Brazil is sometimes considered a separate species: Margaretta's Hermit (P. margarettae).
