Geospiza Gould, 1837

Geospiza is a genus of bird in the Thraupidae family; all species of Geospiza are endemic to the Galápagos Islands, and together with related genera they are collectively known as Darwin's finches. Sometimes classified in the bunting and American sparrow family Emberizidae, more recent studies have shown it to belong in the tanager family.

It contains the following species:

* Large Cactus Finch (Geospiza conirostris)
* Sharp-beaked Ground Finch (Geospiza difficilis)
o Vampire Finch (Geospiza difficilis septentrionalis)
* Medium Ground Finch (Geospiza fortis)
* Small Ground Finch (Geospiza fuliginosa)
* Large Ground Finch (Geospiza magnirostris)
* Common Cactus Finch (Geospiza scandens)
