The Shining Honeycreeper (Cyanerpes lucidus) is a small bird in the tanager family. It is found in the tropical New World in Central America from southern Mexico to Panama and northwest Colombia. It is sometimes considered to be conspecific with the Purple Honeycreeper (C. caeruleus), but the two species breed sympatrically in eastern Panama and northwest Colombia.
