Campephagidae or cuckooshrikes, is a family of small to medium-sized passerines found in the subtropical and tropical Africa, Asia and Australasia. The roughly 86 species are found in eight (or nine) genera which comprise five distinct groups, the 'true' cuckooshrike, the trillers, the minivets and the flycatcher-shrikes comprise a total of 316 taxa. The woodshrikes were often considered to be in this family but are probably better placed in their own family, Tephrodornithidae, along with the philentomas and the flycatcher-shrikes. Another genus, Chlamydochaera, which has one species, the black-breasted fruithunter was often placed in this family but has now been shown to be a thrush (Turdidae).
