 Comments
       
  Comment: Although the Zoonomen website (1998) placed the genus Rhinopomastus Jardine 1828 in its own family, the Rhinopomastidae, as of June 2005 Zoonomen has placed this genus into the Phoeniculidae, without comment. Dickinson (2003) also reflects this lumping, so ITIS is synonymizing Rhinopomastidae under Phoeniculidae
