Rusty-browed Warbling-finch (Poospiza erythrophrys) - HBW 16, p. 624
French: Chipiu à sourcils roux
Spanish: Monterita Cejirrufa
Taxonomy: Poospiza erythrophrys P. L. Sclater, 1881, Sierra de Totoral, Catamarca, Argentina.
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. Molecular evidence suggests that this species is part of a clade that also includes P. alticola, P. torquata and P. melanoleuca, where similar-looking P. ornata was found not to be a close relative. Two subspecies recognized.
