The purple-bibbed whitetip (Urosticte benjamini) is a species of hummingbird. It is native to Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru. Little is known about the species due to it rarely foraging in the open - in search for insects and small flowers. Nesting is made from foliage such as moss and ferns, usually along steep ravines.
