Tanagers (Thraupidae)

Lemon-spectacled Tanager (Chlorothraupis olivacea) - HBW 16, p. 322

French: Habia à lunettes German: Gelbbrauentangare Spanish: Tangara Olivácea
Other common names: Lemon-browed Tanager, Spectacled Tanager

Taxonomy: Orthogonys olivaceus Cassin, 1860, River Truandó, north-west Colombia.
Molecular-genetic evidence indicates that this genus may form a monophyletic group with Piranga and Habia, and that all three are more closely related to cardinals (Cardinalidae) than to true tanagers. Monotypic.

Distribution: Pacific slope in extreme E Panama (SE Darién S & E of R Chepo and R Chucunaque) and W Colombia (E along N base of Andes to Magdalena Valley in Antioquia, and in Pacific lowlands) S to NW Ecuador (N Esmeraldas).
