The buff-breasted mountain tanager (Dubusia taeniata) is a species of Neotropical bird in the tanager family Thraupidae.

It is found in Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist montane forests.

Taxonomy[edit]

The buff-breasted mountain tanager was formally described in 1840 by the French ornithologist Auguste Boissonneau from a specimen collected near Bogotá in Colombia. He coined the binomial name Tanagra taeniata.[2] The specific epithet is the Latin word for a "head-band".[3] This species is now placed in the genus Dubusia that was introduced in 1850 by the French naturalist Charles Lucien Bonaparte.[4][5]

Three subspecies are recognised:[5]

  • D. t. carrikeri Wetmore, 1946 – north Colombia
  • D. t. taeniata (Boissonneau, 1840) – central Colombia and west Venezuela to northwest Peru
  • D. t. stictocephala Berlepsch & Stolzmann, 1894 – north Peru to south-central Peru
Papallacta Pass - Ecuador
