Metaponia Bonaparte, Notes Coll. Delattre, p. 17 (1854), Type, Metaponia pusilla Pall.
The genus Metaponia contains one Pinch which has a considerable amount of yellow in its plumage and connects the Linnets with the Siskins. In this genus the sexes are alike, the bill is small but thick, with the culmen well curved ; the wing is long with the first, second and third primaries subequal in length ; the tail is well forked. This genus is very close to Serinus, which contains the Canaries and Serin Finches.
