Veniliornis is a genus of birds in the woodpecker family Picidae. They are native to Central and South America.

The genus was introduced by the French ornithologist Charles Lucien Bonaparte in 1854.[1] The word Veniliornis combines the name of the Roman deity Venilia with the Greek word ornis meaning "bird".[2] The type species was designated as the blood-colored woodpecker (Veniliornis sanguineus) by the English zoologist George Robert Gray in 1855.[3][4]

The genus contains the following 14 species:[5]

Scarlet-backed woodpecker, Veniliornis callonotus
Yellow-vented woodpecker, Veniliornis dignus
Bar-bellied woodpecker, Veniliornis nigriceps
Little woodpecker, Veniliornis passerinus
Dot-fronted woodpecker, Veniliornis frontalis
White-spotted woodpecker, Veniliornis spilogaster
Blood-colored woodpecker, Veniliornis sanguineus
Red-rumped woodpecker, Veniliornis kirkii
Red-stained woodpecker, Veniliornis affinis
Chocó woodpecker, Veniliornis chocoensis
Golden-collared woodpecker, Veniliornis cassini
Yellow-eared woodpecker, Veniliornis maculifrons
Striped woodpecker, Veniliornis lignarius – formerly in Picoides[6][7]
Checkered woodpecker, Veniliornis mixtus – formerly in Picoides[6][7]
