The Chinese white-browed rosefinch (Carpodacus dubius) is a true finch species (family Fringillidae).

It is found in central China and eastern Tibet. Its natural habitats are temperate forests and temperate shrubland.

This species was at one time considered as a subspecies of the Himalayan white-browed rosefinch (Carpodacus thura) but was up-ranked to species status. This was supported by a phylogenetic analysis of DNA sequences.[1][2]
