Spanish: Jilguero Rojo
Taxonomy: Carduelis cucullata Swainson, 1820, Cumaná, Venezuela.
Has recently been proposed that this species be placed in genus Spinus or Sporagra, and revision may be justifiable as phylogenetic analysis indicates that South American siskins are only distantly related to the two Holarctic ones, but comprehensive review of all species currently included within present genus is required in order to determine true relationships. Monotypic.
Distribution: NE Colombia (Norte de Santander), N & W Venezuela and S Guyana.Introduced to Puerto Rico.
