Eupherusa is a genus of hummingbirds in the family Trochilidae. It contains the following five species:[1]

Image Scientific name Common Name Distribution
Mexican Woodnymph (14544829494).jpg Eupherusa ridgwayi Mexican woodnymph west Mexico
Blue-capped Hummingbird-edited.jpg Eupherusa cyanophrys Oaxaca hummingbird Sierra Madre del Sur in the Mexican state of Oaxaca
Eupherusa eximia.jpg Eupherusa eximia Stripe-tailed hummingbird southeastern Mexico to Panama.

Eupherusa poliocerca White-tailed hummingbird Sierra Madre del Sur in Guerrero and extreme western Oaxaca, Mexico

The Mexican woodnymph was formerly placed in the genus Thalurania with other species with "woodnymph" in their English names. A molecular phylogenetic study published in 2014 found that Thalurania was non-monophyletic and that the Mexican woodnymph is closely related to species in Eupherusa.[2] Based on this result the Mexican woodnymph is now placed in Eupherusa.[1]
