French: Moineau d'Arabie German: Jemengoldsperling Spanish: Gorrión Árabe

Taxonomy: Auripasser euchloru s Bonaparte, 1850, "Abyssinia, Arabia" = Kunfuda, Arabia.
This species and P. luteus formerly placed in a separate genus, Auripasser. The two form a superspecies and in the past were often treated as conspecific; some authorities include P. eminibey in this superspecies, but this appears not to be justified. Monotypic.

Distribution: SW tip of Arabian Peninsula, and Djibouti and extreme coastal NW Somalia.
