Adult which here shows well the violet ear spot and breast.
2012-10-22 Las Trojes, Jocotepec, Jalisco (Jal), Mexico
Unmistakable. Large and at large completely green with black decurved bill, and violet ear spot. Has a characteristic voice. Often head from high above in trees.

The violet breast is very clear here, and was, before the species was split from Green Violetear, what distinguished the subspecies present in Mexico.
