Taxonomic Swap 107942 (Committed on 2022-03-25)

The group name 'mountain-tanager' has been applied to species in several different genera (Buthraupis, Tephrophilus, Cnemathraupis, Anisognathus, Dubusia, and Pseudosaltator), and does not form a monophyletic group; therefore change the English name of Buthraupis wetmorei from Masked Mountain-Tanager to Masked Mountain Tanager. Masked Mountain Tanager is more closely related to Grass-green Tanager than it is to Hooded Mountain Tanager Buthraupis montana; change the scientific name from Buthraupis wetmorei to Tephrophilus wetmorei.
