|Range of C. buffonii|
A large hummingbird, the white-vented plumeleteer measures about 12 cm (4.7 in). The male has a metallic green body, dark wings and a blue-black tail. The namesake feature is a large patch of white undertail coverts. Bill is entirely black, as are the feet. He is easily confused with the similar bronze-tailed plumeleteer. The female is similar, but has an entirely white belly, chest and chin.
