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, although recent authors had suggested Turnagra belongs in Ptilonorhynchidae; however the latest studies show that Turnagra is closest to Oriolus (see Boyd; http://jboyd.net/Taxo/List18.html). Taxonomy was discussed by Medway (2004b).
