Rhodopechys is a genus of finches containing four species:

  • Crimson-winged Finch, Rhodopechys sanguinea
    Trumpeter Finch, Rhodopechys githaginea
    Mongolian Finch, Rhodopechys mongolica

The Desert Finch, Carduelis obsoletus (formerly Rhodopechys obsoleta), has turned out to belong to the genus Carduelis as indicated by DNA sequences, song and eyestripe pattern; it shares a common ancestor with the greenfinches Zamora et al., 2006). See the species account for details.
