Chlorostilbon is a genus of hummingbird in the family Trochilidae, known as emeralds (as are some hummingbirds in the genera Amazilia and Elvira). A single species, the blue-chinned sapphire is variously placed in the monotypic genus Chlorestes or in Chlorostilbon. The taxonomy of the C. mellisugus superspecies is highly complex and, depending on view, includes 1-8 species. All species in this genus have straight black or black-and-red bills. The males are overall iridescent green, golden-green or bluish-green, and in some species the tail and/or throat is blue.[1] The females have whitish-grey underparts, tail-corners and post-ocular streak.

The genus Chlorostilbon was introduced in 1853 by the English ornithologist John Gould.[2][3]
Species

The genus contains ten species:[2]

Blue-tailed emerald (Chlorostilbon mellisugus)
Garden emerald (Chlorostilbon assimilis)
Red-billed emerald (Chlorostilbon gibsoni)
Western emerald (Chlorostilbon melanorhynchus)
Chiribiquete emerald (Chlorostilbon olivaresi)
Glittering-bellied emerald (Chlorostilbon lucidus; formerly C. aureoventris)
Coppery emerald (Chlorostilbon russatus)
Narrow-tailed emerald (Chlorostilbon stenurus)
Green-tailed emerald (Chlorostilbon alice)
Short-tailed emerald (Chlorostilbon poortmani)
