The Antioquia Wren, Thryophilus sernai, is a passerine from the wren family (Troglodytidae). It was discovered in March 2010 in the vicinity of the Cauca River in Antioquia, Colombia and described as new species in 2012. The epithet commemorates the late Marco Antonio Serna Díaz (1936-1991), a Colombian naturalist from San Vicente Ferrer, Antioquia. The Antioquia Wren is closely related to the Rufous-and-white Wren and the Niceforo's Wren. It occurs on both banks of the Cauca River Canyon but it is uncommon throughout its range. Its habitat is dry forests. Principal threats to that species include habitat destructions caused by the building of the Ituango Dam.
