Harpyhaliaetus is a former genus of eagles. Recent studies have shown that the solitary eagle is closely related to the black-hawks, in particular the savanna hawk (Buteogallus meridionalis) which is smaller and browner but otherwise very similar to Harpyhaliaetus. Therefore, this genus is now merged into that of the black-hawks.
It contained the following species:
|Image||Scientific name||Common Name||Distribution|
|Harpyhaliaetus coronatus||Chaco eagle||Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Bolivia|
|Harpyhaliaetus solitarius||Solitary eagle||native to Mexico and Central and South America|
