The tanager finch (Oreothraupis arremonops) is a songbird species. In the recent past usually placed in the Emberizidae (bunting and American sparrow) family, it actually seems to be, as its common name implies, a kind of tanager (Thraupidae). But its precise affinities are unclear. It is placed in the monotypic genus Oreothraupis.[2]
