Atlapetes is a genus of birds in the New World sparrow family Passerellidae. The species mainly found in montane forest from Mexico to northwest Argentina.[1]
Taxonomy and species

The genus Atlapetes was introduced in 1831 by the German naturalist Johann Georg Wagler to accommodate the rufous-capped brushfinch (Atlapetes pileatus).[2][3] The genus name is from Ancient Greek and combines the name of the mythical figure Atlas with petēs meaning "flyer".[4] Within the New World sparrow family Passerellidae the genus Atlapetes is sister to the genus Pipilo.[5]
