Threnetes Gould, 1852


* Gould, 1852. Monogr.Trochil. pt4 pl.14,15

Threnetes is a genus in the hummingbird family (Trochilidae). It contains the following species, collectively known as the barbthroats:

* Pale-tailed Barbthroat, Threnetes leucurus (formerly in T. niger)
* Sooty Barbthroat, Threnetes niger
o Bronze-tailed Barbthroat, T. (n.) loehkeni
o Christina's Barbthroat, T. (n./l.) christinae (doubtfully distinct from loehkeni)
o Freire's Sooty Barbthroat, T. (n./l.) freirei
* Band-tailed Barbthroat, Threnetes ruckeri

The supposed "Black Barbthroats", described as T. grzimeki, are actually juvenile males of the Rufous-breasted Hermit (Glaucis hirsuta).
