Scientific classification e
Unrecognized taxon (fix): Threnetes

Threnetes is a genus in the hummingbird family (Trochilidae). It contains the following species, collectively known as the barbthroats:

  • Pale-tailed Barbthroat, Threnetes leucurus (formerly in T. niger)
  • Sooty Barbthroat, Threnetes niger
    • Bronze-tailed Barbthroat, T. (n.) loehkeni
    • Christina's Barbthroat, T. (n./l.) christinae (doubtfully distinct from loehkeni)
    • Freire's Sooty Barbthroat, T. (n./l.) freirei
  • Band-tailed Barbthroat, Threnetes ruckeri

The supposed "Black Barbthroats", described as T. grzimeki, are actually juvenile males of the Rufous-breasted Hermit (Glaucis hirsuta).
