Chlorospingus is a genus of perching birds, the bush tanagers, traditionally placed in the tanager family (Thraupidae). More recent studies which suggest they are closely related to the genus Arremonops in the Passerellidae (American sparrows). As of July, 2017, the American Ornithological Society assigns the genus to the new family Passerellidae, which contains the New World sparrows.[1]

It contains these species:

Ashy-throated bush tanager, C. canigularis
Yellow-throated bush tanager, C. flavigularis
Common bush tanager, C. flavopectus
Dusky-headed bush tanager, C. (flavopectus) postocularis
White-fronted bush tanager, C. (flavopectus) albifrons
Dwight's bush tanager, C. (flavopectus) dwighti
Wetmore's bush tanager, C. (flavopectus) wetmorei
Pirre bush tanager, C. inornatus
Yellow-whiskered bush tanager, C. parvirostris
Sooty-capped bush tanager, C. pileatus
Dusky bush tanager, C. semifuscus
Tacarcuna bush tanager, C. tacarcunae

The taxonomy and systematics of the common bush tanager are under review; it appears to be a superspecies or even a complex of superspecies.[2][3][4]
