Taxonomy and systematics
The golden-collared toucanet was originally described in the genus Pteroglossus. Alternate names include gold-collared toucanet and Reinwardt's toucanet.
- Red-billed toucanet (S. r. reinwardtii) - (Wagler, 1827): Found in southern Colombia, eastern Ecuador and north-eastern Peru
- Langsdorff's toucanet (S. r. langsdorffii) - (Wagler, 1827): Also named Green-billed toucanet. Originally described as a separate species in the genus Pteroglossus and considered by some authorities to be a separate species in the genus Selenidera. Found in eastern Peru, western Brazil and northern Bolivia
The nominate subspecies has a broadly black-tipped maroon-red bill, while S. r. langsdorffii has a broadly black-tipped bluish-grey bill. The plumage of both subspecies is very similar to that of the related spot-billed, tawny-tufted and Gould's toucanets. It is 30.5–35 cm (12–14 in) long and weighs from 129 to 200 grams (4.5-7.1 oz.)
