First photographic registration of the Sapphire-bellied Hummingbird,
Lepidopyga lilliae, in detail!

During February and April of 2007 were captured the first two males individuals of more
than 100 hummingbirds captured in the project. At present the sequencing of the
sister species is being carryed out and promptly the first genetic sequence of the
Sapphire-bellied Hummingbird will be obtained, a taxon whose taxonomic status is still uncertain.
