BirdLife/IUCN splits these from Violaceous Trogon as there own species, does that seem right?

Looks like that is the most recent view. Thanks Loarie.

AOU makes the same split. Apparently the birds in northern South America, Central America and Mexico are all now Gartered Trogon (T. caligatus) while the Violaceous Trogon (T. violaceus) is only in the deep rainforests of South America. Great catch, Loarie. Wikipedia even has the current info:
