(Tyrannidae; Black-capped Piprites P. pileata) Genus Pipra Linnaeus, 1764, manakin; Gr. -ιτης -itēs  resembling; "Die Pipra pileata und P. chloris Natt. Temm. weichen mehrfach, besonders durch Schnabelbildung, Form der Flügel und des Schwanzes, weniger verwachsene Zehen und Farbung des Gefieders von den typischen Formen der Gattung Pipra ab und nähern sich in dieser Beziehung den kleineren Arten der Ampelinen (Amphibolura, Ampelion, Ptilochloris), so dass eine generische Sonderung von Pipra gerechtfertigt scheint: Gen. Piprites n. gen.   1. P. pileataPipra pileata Natt. Temm. pl. col. 172. F. 1." (Cabanis 1847); "Piprites Cabanis, 1847, Archiv f. Naturg., 13 (1), p. 234.  Type, by monotypy, Pipra pileata Temminck." (Snow in Peters, 1979, VIII, p. 249).  The relationships of the piprites are uncertain.  Fjeldså, Christidis & Ericson (eds.), 2020, treat the genus as monofamilial, Pipritidae, observing, "They were previously thought to be manakins, but they are monogamous and, although handsome, the males are not so extravagantly coloured as manakins.   ...  The molecular data now demonstrate that Piprites has no near relatives among the New World flycatchers".
