The Yellow-cheeked Becard, Pachyramphus xanthogenys, is a species of passerine bird in the Tityridae family. It has traditionally been placed in Cotingidae or Tyrannidae, but evidence strongly suggest it is better placed in Tityridae, where now placed by SACC. It is found in Colombia, Ecuador and Peru.
Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical moist montanes.
It is often treated as a subspecies of Green-backed Becard, Pachyramphus viridis.
