The Táchira emerald (Amazilia distans) is a hummingbird described in 1956 by Alexander Wetmore and William Phelps as a new species from a specimen from Venezuela. It is now considered an intergeneric hybrid between the glittering-throated emerald (Amazilia fimbriata) and the white-chinned sapphire (Hylocharis cyanus).
