Saffron Siskin (Carduelis siemiradzkii) - HBW 15, p. 554
French: Chardonneret safran
Spanish: Jilguero Azafranado
Taxonomy: Chrysomitris siemiradzkii Berlepsch and Taczanowski, 1884, Guayaquil, Ecuador.
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 species (C. spinus and C. pinus), but comprehensive review of all species currently included within present genus is required in order to determine true relationships. Monotypic.
Distribution: SW Ecuador (SW Manabí, Guayas and SW Loja) and extreme NW Peru (Tumbes).
