Black-and-gold Tanager (Bangsia melanochlamys) - HBW 16, p. 197
French: Tangara à cape noire
Spanish: Tangara Negrigualda
Taxonomy: Buthraupis melanochlamys Hellmayr, 1910, La Selva, River Jamaraya, 4800 feet [c. 1460 m], Chocó, Colombia.
In the past, genus sometimes subsumed in Buthraupis, but this treatment not supported by recent molecular-genetic studies, which place it in a separate clade, with Wetmorethraupis as sister to it; in addition, members of present genus are smaller in size and shorter-tailed than Buthraupis, relatively uniform in plumage, behaviourally less social and occur mostly at lower elevations. Monotypic.
Distribution: Colombia: NW end of C Andes in Antioquia, and W slope of W Andes on Cerro Tatamá and Mistrató (including Alto de Pisones), on Chocó–Risaralda–Valle del Cauca border.
