|Woodshrikes and allies|
|Large Woodshrike (Tephrodornis gularis)|
Tephrodornithidae is a family of birds that includes the genera Hemipus, Tephrodornis and sometimes Philentoma. The family was proposed in 2006 on the basis of a molecular phylogenetic study by Moyle which showed a close relation between Hemipus and Tephrodornis. Some taxonomists argue for a broader treatment of the genera under the Vangidae.
