| Common Woodshrike|
Tephrodornis is a bird genus in the helmetshrike family Prionopidae, commonly known as the woodshrikes. They were formerly placed in the Campephagidae (cuckoo-shrikes) by some, as they are far more conventional in habitus than the rather bizarre typical helmetshrikes of genus Prionops.
There are only two species:
- Large Woodshrike, Tephrodornis gularis The scientific name of this is in dispute, and it is commonly referred to as T. gularis. or T. virgatus.
- Common Woodshrike, Tephrodornis pondicerianus
- Sri Lanka Woodshrike, Tephrodornis affinis
- Malabar Woodshrike, Tephrodornis sylvicola
