The dark-breasted rosefinch (Procarduelis nipalensis) is a true finch species (family Fringillidae).
It is found in Bhutan, China, India, Laos, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Thailand, and Vietnam. Its natural habitats are boreal forests and subtropical or tropical high-altitude shrubland.
The dark-breasted rosefinch was formerly placed in the genus Carpodacus but was moved to Procarduelis based on the results from the phylogenetic analyses of mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequences.
