Hypothymis is a genus of birds in the family Monarchidae.

The genus was introduced by the German zoologist Friedrich Boie in 1826 with the black-naped monarch (Hypothymis azurea) as the type species.[1][2] The word Hypothymis is from the Ancient Greek hupothumis, the name of an unidentified bird mentioned by the playwright Aristophanes.[3]

The genus contains four species:[4]

Black-naped monarch (Hypothymis azurea)
Pale-blue monarch (Hypothymis puella)
Short-crested monarch (Hypothymis helenae)
Celestial monarch (Hypothymis coelestis)
