Carduelis (goldfinches)

Wikipedia Abstract

The genus Carduelisis a group of birds in the finch family Fringillidae.A large number of bird species were at one time assigned to the genus but it became clear from phylogenetic studies of mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequences that the genus was polyphyletic. The polyphyletic nature of the genus was confirmed by Dario Zuccon and coworkers in a comprehensive study of the finch family published in 2012.
