The wing-barred piprites (Piprites chloris) is a species of bird which traditionally has placed in the Pipridae family, although it remains unclear if this is correct. It is therefore considered incertae sedis by recent authorities such as SACC.[2]

It is found in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, and Venezuela. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical moist montane forests.
