Genus of bird / From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Erithacus (Greek: "robin" (erithacos)[1]) is a genus of passerine bird that contains a single extant species, the European robin (Erithacus rubecula). The Japanese robin and Ryukyu robin were also placed in this genus (as Erithacus akahige and E. komadori), but were moved to the genus Larvivora in 2006.[2]
