Baeolophus is a genus of birds in the family Paridae. Its members are commonly known as titmice. All the species are native to North America. In the past, most authorities retained Baeolophus as a subgenus within the genus Parus, but treatment as a distinct genus, initiated by the American Ornithologists Union, is now widely accepted.
The genus contains the five species:
- Bridled titmouse, B. wollweberi
- Oak titmouse, B. inornatus
- Juniper titmouse, B. ridgwayi
- Tufted titmouse, B. bicolor
- Black-crested titmouse, B. atricristatus
