The firecrowns are the genus Sephanoides of the hummingbirds. There are two species.

The Green-backed Firecrown occurs widely in Argentina and Chile, but the Juan Fernández Firecrown is found solely on Isla Róbinson Crusoe, one of a three-island archipelago belonging to Chile.

Both species will hang from flower petals or leaves with their feet. They feed on nectar and insects
