  Comment: Common Bush Tanager comprises multiple species, at least five in Mexico and Middle America; Species in southern Central America and South America become (provisionally) C. flavopectus (Lafresnaye, 1840) with type locality restriction of C. ophthalmicus to Mexico. When treated as a single species, C. flavopectus (Lafresnaye, 1840) has priority over C. ophthalmicus (Du Bus de Gisignies, 1847) (IOC List v12.1)
