Neomorphus is a genus of terrestrial cuckoos in the Cuculidae family. Despite their relatively large size, they are highly inconspicuous and rarely seen. They are restricted to the humid primary forests in the Neotropics, and despite their similar looks, not closely related to the Asian ground cuckoos of the genus Carpococcyx.
