French: Habia à joues noires
Spanish: Habia Carinegra
Taxonomy: Phoenicothraupis atrimaxillaris Dwight and Griscom, 1924, Puerto Jimenez, Puntarenas, Costa Rica.
Molecular-genetic evidence indicates that this genus may form a monophyletic group with Piranga and Chlorothraupis, and that all three are more closely related to cardinals (Cardinalidae) than to true tanagers. Monotypic.
Distribution: Vicinity of Osa Peninsula and Golfo Dulce (S Puntarenas), in SW Costa Rica.
