Chrysuronia is a genus of hummingbirds in the family Trochilidae.
Species

The genus contains nine species:[1]

Shining-green hummingbird (Chrysuronia goudoti)
Golden-tailed sapphire (Chrysuronia oenone)
Versicolored emerald (Chrysuronia versicolor)
Sapphire-throated hummingbird (Chrysuronia coeruleogularis)
Sapphire-bellied hummingbird (Chrysuronia lilliae)
Humboldt's sapphire (Chrysuronia humboldtii)
Blue-headed sapphire (Chrysuronia grayi)
White-chested emerald (Chrysuronia brevirostris)
Plain-bellied emerald (Chrysuronia leucogaster)

This genus formerly included only a single species, the golden-tailed sapphire. A molecular phylogenetic study published in 2014 found that the genera Amazilia and Lepidopyga were polyphyletic.[2] In the revised classification to create monophyletic genera, Chrysuronia was broadened to include species that had previous been placed in Amazilia, Hylocharis and Lepidopyga.[1][3]
