The dusky starfrontlet, also known as glittering starfrontlet, is a hummingbird species in the subfamily Trochilinae. It is found only at high altitudes in the Cordillera Occidental of Colombia, and was first discovered on Páramo de Frontino. Its status was mysterious for a long time as it was only known from a single museum specimen; and erroneously considered to be an immature golden-bellied starfrontlet Coeligena bonapartei. When it was rediscovered in 2004, in what is now the Colibri del Sol Bird Reserve, its status as a distinct species was confirmed.
