Calyptophilus is a genus of bird formerly placed in the family Thraupidae. The group was found to be distinct enough to be placed in its own family, Calyptophilidae. Established by Charles Barney Cory in 1884, it contains the following species:[1]

Western chat-tanager, Calyptophilus tertius
Eastern chat-tanager, Calyptophilus frugivorus

These two species were formerly considered conspecific under C. frugivorus (with the common name of chat tanager).

The name Calyptophilus comes from the Greek words kaluptēs, meaning "hider" (derived from kaluptō, meaning "to cover") and philos, meaning "loving" (derived from phileō, meaning "to love").[2]
