Uniform Finch (Haplospiza unicolor) - HBW 16, p. 615
French: Haplospize unicolore
Spanish: Yal Unicolor
Taxonomy: Haplospiza unicolor Cabanis, 1851, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.
Molecular data suggest that this genus is part of a clade which includes also Catamenia, as well as Phrygilus unicolor and Phrygilus plebejus (but not others of that genus); in particular, a relationship between present genus and Phrygilus unicolor was suggested by early authors on basis of similarities in plumage and structure; molecular data indicate also that Acanthidops is related to present genus. This species probably forms a superspecies with H. rustica. Monotypic.
Distribution: E Paraguay, NE Argentina (Misiones) and SE Brazil (S Minas Gerais and S Espírito Santo S to Rio Grande do Sul).
