Tachyphonus is a genus of birds in the tanager family Thraupidae.

The genus was introduced by the French ornithologist Louis Pierre Vieillot in 1816 with the white-lined tanager as the type species.[1][2] The name combines the Ancient Greek words takhus "fast" and phōneō "to speak".[3]

Taxonomy

A molecular phylogenetic study of the tanager family published in 2014 indicated that the genus as defined her is polyphyletic and paraphyletic relative to Lanio and Rhodospingus.[4][5][6]

The genus includes 5 species:[4]

Male Female Common Name Scientific name Distribution
Fulvous-crested tanager Tachyphonus surinamus Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Peru, Suriname, and Venezuela.
Tawny-crested tanager Tachyphonus delatrii Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama.
Ruby-crowned tanager Tachyphonus coronatus southern areas of Brazil and the Atlantic Forest.
White-lined tanager Tachyphonus rufus Costa Rica south to northern Argentina, and on the islands of Trinidad and Tobago
Red-shouldered tanager Tachyphonus phoenicius Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Peru, Suriname, and Venezuela.
