Neospiza

(syn. Crithagra Ϯ São Tomé Grosbeak C. concolor) Gr. νεος neos  new; σπιζα spiza  finch  < σπιζω spizō  to chirp; "12. Neospiza (nov. gen.) concolor (BOC.)  Amblyospiza concolor, Boc., Jorn. Sc. Lisb., No. XLVIII, pp. 231, 234.  ...  per questi caratteri a me sembra che l'A. concolor non appartenga ai Ploceidi, ma ai Fringillidi e debba constituire il tipo di un genere distinto, che propongo di chiamare Neospiza, affine al genere Serinus, o Chrithagra [sic], e forse anche al genere Linurgus." (Salvadori 1903). The São Tomé Grosbeak was once feared extinct, but a very small and critically endangered population has been discovered.
