Bangsia is a genus of Neotropical birds in the tanager family Thraupidae. They are native to humid forests in Colombia, Ecuador, Panama and Costa Rica.

Taxonomy and species list

The genus Bangsia was introduce in 1919 by the ornithologist Thomas Edward Penard with a subspecies of the blue-and-gold tanager Buthraupis arcaei caeruleigularis as the type. The specific epithet was chosen to honour the American ornithologist Outram Bangs.[1] A molecular phylogenetic study published in 2014 found that the genus Bangsia was sister to the genus Wetmorethraupis which contains only a single species, the orange-throated tanager.[2]

The genus contains six species:[3]

Blue-and-gold tanager, Bangsia arcaei
Black-and-gold tanager, Bangsia melanochlamys
Golden-chested tanager, Bangsia rothschildi
Moss-backed tanager, Bangsia edwardsi
Gold-ringed tanager, Bangsia aureocincta
Yellow-green tanager, Bangsia flavovirens
