     Le Colibri de Julie ou Colibri Julie (Juliamyia julie, anciennement Damophila julie) est une espèce de colibris de la sous-famille des Trochilinae.


    Cette espèce était autrefois placée dans le genre Damophila, sous le nom scientifique de Damophila julie, mais c'était une erreur, car ce genre existait déjà dans l'ordre des lépidoptères et n'était donc pas disponible. Elle a donc été déplacée dans le genre monospécifique Juliamyia qui était jusque-là considéré comme un synonyme.


    Ses habitats sont les forêts tropicales et subtropicales humides ou sèches de basses altitude mais aussi les anciennes forêts lourdement dégradées.


    Le colibri de Julie se trouve en Colombie, au Panama, en Équateur et au Pérou. ...
