Tanagers (Thraupidae)

Cherry-throated Tanager (Nemosia rourei) - HBW 16, p. 161

French: Tangara rougegorge German: Rubinkehltangare Spanish: Tangara Golirroja

Taxonomy: Nemosia Rourei Cabanis, 1870, locality uncertain, probably Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Type locality was for long regarded as Muriaé, in SE Minas Gerais, but this now questioned, and hypothesized that type specimen is, in fact, from Macaé, in S Rio de Janeiro. Molecular-genetic data indicate that present genus and Sericossypha are probably sister-taxa. Although this species has for long been placed in present genus, it is vocally closer to Lamprospiza. Monotypic.

Distribution: Espírito Santo and probably also adjacent Minas Gerais, in E Brazil.
