          Obviously you have done enough research to ask that question....

          Furthermore, I'm in no position to answer as I'm not an Avian expert....sorry mate.

            From Google I found that Swainson's Blue Mountain Lory (aka Swainson's lory) is another name given to the "molucanus" race of the Rainbow Lorikeet, the Blue-naped form, so you can say Swainson's Lory is a subspecies of the Rainbow Lory.

              Good stuff, a very handsome bird. I like the tighter crop!
