The yellow tit, or Formosan yellow tit,[2] (Parus holsti) is a species of bird in the Paridae family. It is endemic to central Taiwan.

Its natural habitat is montane temperate forest.

It has a restricted range and small population, and appears to be declining due to large-scale capture for export by the wild bird trade, so it is classed as Near Threatened by the IUCN.
