Bangsia is a genus of Neotropical birds in the tanager family Thraupidae. They are native to humid forests in Colombia, Ecuador, Panama and Costa Rica.

Taxonomy and species list

The genus Bangsia was introduce in 1919 by the ornithologist Thomas Edward Penard with a subspecies of the blue-and-gold tanager Buthraupis arcaei caeruleigularis as the type. The genus name honours the American ornithologist Outram Bangs.[1] A molecular phylogenetic study published in 2014 found that the genus Bangsia was sister to the genus Wetmorethraupis which contains only a single species, the orange-throated tanager.[2]

The genus contains six species:[3]
