French: Chipiu de Bolivie

New molecular data indicate that genus forms a clade with the tanager (Thraupidae) genera Hemispingus and Thlypopsis, and that Compsospiza, which often subsumed within present genus, is sister to that clade. This species is thought to be either sister to P. ornata or part of a clade that also includes latter. Monotypic.
