Baeolophus is a genus of birds in the family Paridae, commonly called tits. Its members are known as titmouses or titmice. All the species are native to North America. In the past, most authorities retained Baeolophus as a subgenus within the genus Parus, but treatment as a distinct genus, initiated by the American Ornithological Society, is now widely accepted.[2]

Etymology

The genus name Baeolophus translates to small crested and is a compound of the Ancient Greek words βαιός : baiós - small, and λόφος : lόphοs - crest.

Taxonomy

The genus contains the following five species:[3]

Baeolophus ridgwayi Juniper titmouse The Great Basin and adjacent areas
