Campyloramphus (lapsus)

Campylorhamphus, the scythebills, are a bird genus in the woodcreeper subfamily (Dendrocolaptinae). They are found in wooded habitats in South America and southern Central America, and all have very long, somewhat scythe-shaped bills.

The Greater Scythebill was formerly included in this genus, but it is closer to the Scimitar-billed Woodcreeper.[1]
