The mangos, Anthracothorax, are a genus of hummingbirds in the subfamily Trochilinae native to the Neotropics.

The genus Anthracothorax was introduced by the German zoologist Friedrich Boie in 1831.[1] The type species was subsequently designated as the green-throated mango (Anthracothorax viridigula).[2] The generic name combines the Ancient Greek anthrax meaning "coal" (i.e. black) with thōrax meaning "chest".[3]

A molecular phylogenetic study published in 2014 found that Anthracothorax was paraphyletic with respect to Eulampis.[4][5]

The genus contains seven species:[6]
