Species

Diphyllodes is a genus of birds-of-paradise. Established by René-Primevère Lesson in 1834, it contains two species: the Magnificent Bird-of-paradise and Wilson's Bird-of-paradise.[3] Both species are endemic to New Guinea, where they are found in forested uplands. The genus is sometimes subsumed into the genus Cicinnurus.[4]
