Cinnycerthia is a genus of bird in the wren family, Troglodytidae. It contains four species which inhabit the undergrowth of montane forests in the Andes.[1] None of them are considered to be threatened with extinction and they are classified as species of Least Concern by BirdLife International.[2] They are 14–16.5 cm long and have a fairly short bill and fairly plain reddish-brown plumage with dark bars on the wings and tail.[1] The name of the genus is a combination of Cinnyris, a genus of sunbirds, and Certhia, a genus of treecreepers.[3]
Species list

The genus contains the following species:[4]

Rufous wren (Cinnycerthia unirufa)
Sepia-brown wren (Cinnycerthia olivascens)
Peruvian wren (Cinnycerthia peruana)
Fulvous wren (Cinnycerthia fulva)

The sepia-brown and fulvous wrens were formerly treated as subspecies of the Peruvian wren.[5]
