Current research (see Boyd) suggests that the remaining Passerines are divided into Passeri (sub-oscines) and Tyranni (oscines). Only three familes of sub-oscines occur in the Pacific Region: Pittidae, part of Old World Eurylaimides, and Tyrannidae and Furnariidae, both part of New World Tyrannides. These three sub-oscine families follow.

PITTIDAE (1 species)

Pitta anerythra Black-faced Pitta
NOTE: Dutson (2001) mentions possible records from Kolombangara and Vangunu, noting, however, that the Kolombangara sighting was too brief to rule out the possibility of P. sordida Hooded Pitta.

TYRANNIDAE (9 species)

Phyllomyias ridgwayi Cocos Island Flycatcher
NOTE: Recent genetic data (Zucker et al 2016) found that Nesotriccus is embedded in, and thus merged with, Phyllomyias (Boyd); this was not recognized by IOC v7.2.

The remaining passerines belong to the large sub-order Passeri (oscines). Boyd considers the Passeri to consist of 6 clades, which he designates as parv-orders; of these 6, three occur in the Pacific Region: Meliphagida (families Acanthizidae and Meliphagidae), Corvida, and Passerida. The two families within Meliphagida follow.

ACANTHIZIDAE (5 species)

Noting that Acanthizidae and Pardalotidae were closely related, and have been merged in the past (albeit including bristlebirds), Boyd merged the two familes as Pardalotidae, which has precedence. This has not been followed by IOC v7.2.

MELIPHAGIDAE (31 species)

For placement of Apalopteron Bonin "Honeyeater", see Zosteropidae. The genera Moho and Chaetoptila have been found not to be part of Meliphagidae, but closer to Ptilogonatidae, and placed in the family Mohoidae (Fleischer et al 2008). Stitchbird (Notiomystis cincta) is now placed in its own family Notiomystidae, placed near Callaeidae. A recent comprehensive genetic study by Marki et al (2017) updates phylogeny of Meliphagidae (Boyd); the sequence here follows that in Boyd.

NOTE: Relationships and placement of species between Foulehaio and Gymnomyza are unresolved; Boyd retains only aubryanus in Gymnomyza, while IOC v 7.2 includes brunneirostris, viridis, and samoensis along with aubryanus in Gymnomyza. IOC v7.2 includes only the "wattled honeyeaters" in Foulehaio. Herein IOC v7.2 is followed. Note that there are representatives of both Foulehaio and Gymnomyza on Vite Levu, Fiji. David and Gosselin (2002b) established that Foulehaio is masculine.

Boyd's parvorder Corvida is generally agreed to have originated in the Australasion area, and thus is well-represented in the Pacific Region; of the 31 families included in Corvida by Boyd, 11 are included here, as follows.

NOTE: Pipipi sometimes placed in monotypic genus Finschia. This species and the next two are of uncertain affinity, but currently they are treated as a separate family; the preponderance of evidence suggests they are basal in Corvida, sister to the remaining Corvida (Aggerbeck et al 2014, Jonsson et al 2016, Boles 2007) or close to Campephagidae (Aidala et al 2013).

ORIOLIDAE (3 species)

The genus Turnagra has been allied with several groups; Worthy and Holdaway (2002) and Medway (2004b) discussed its relationships. The preponderance of the evidence had suggested similarities to Pachycephalidae, and more recently Ptilonorhynchidae; however the latest studies show that Turnagra is closest to Oriolus (Johansson et al 2011, and Zuccon and Ericson 2012). Taxonomy was discussed by Medway (2004b).

The following species (Cicadabirds, Black-bellied Cuckoo-Shrike) have been found to be somewhat separated from Coracina and closer to Lalage (Dickinson and Christidis 2014, Jønsson et al 2016). Boyd erected a new genus Edolisoma for these species. This is not followed by IOC v7.2; however, in order to note the genetic separation of these species from Coracina, Boyd is followed herein.

Edolisoma tenuirostris Common Cicadabird
NOTE: It was suggested that this complex be separated into as many as 4 or 5 species (eg Pratt and Etpison 2008): nisoria, the pair of taxa saturatior and erythropygia (Mayr and Diamond 2001), and the Caroline Is taxa monacha, insperata and nesiotis (Clements, 2003).
