Picides is an infraorder of the Piciformes order, that includes woodpeckers and honeyguides. The honeyguides were thought to be closely related to the barbets, as their ariel display and vocalization are similar to each other than either are to woodpeckers. However phylogenetic analysis has shown that honeyguides and woodpeckers are indeed sister taxa.
