The sunangels are a genus of hummingbirds, Heliangelus, found in montane South America. The genus contains the following nine species:[1]

Orange-throated sunangel (Heliangelus mavors)
Amethyst-throated sunangel (Heliangelus amethysticollis)
Longuemare's sunangel (Heliangelus clarisse)
Mérida sunangel (Heliangelus spencei)
Gorgeted sunangel (Heliangelus strophianus)
Tourmaline sunangel (Heliangelus exortis)
Flame-throated sunangel (Heliangelus micraster)
Purple-throated sunangel (Heliangelus viola)
Royal sunangel (Heliangelus regalis)

The Bogotá sunangel was formerly placed in this genus. It is regarded as a hybrid specimen by the International Ornithologists' Union based on a study published in 2018 by Jorge Pérez-Emán and colleagues.[1][2]
