The list of species of Sericornis genus

Sericornis is a genus of small, mainly insectivorous birds, the scrubwrens in the family Acanthizidae. Despite the similarity in shape and habits, the true wrens (Troglodytidae) are a quite unrelated group of passerines.

The genus previously contained additional species but following the publication of a molecular phylogenetic study of the scrubwrens in 2018, several species were moved to the resurrected genus Aethomyias and the yellow-throated scrubwren was placed in its own monotypic genus Neosericornis.

  • Large-billed scrubwren, Sericornis magnirostris
  • Tropical scrubwren or Beccari's scrubwren, Sericornis beccarii - sometimes included in S. magnirostris
  • Large scrubwren, Sericornis nouhuysi
  • Spotted scrubwren, Sericornis maculatus - previously included in S. frontalis
  • Tasmanian scrubwren or brown scrubwren, Sericornis humilis - previously included in S. frontalis
  • Atherton scrubwren, Sericornis keri
  • White-browed scrubwren, Sericornis frontalis
  • Perplexing scrubwren, Sericornis virgatus
