Abstract The historical relationships of ground antbirds and their relatives have long been unresolved. Here, I present a phylogenetic analysis of ground antbird (Formicariidae) relationships based on DNA sequence data from the cytochrome-b and ND2 genes. Results support novel hypotheses of historical relationships, including two revisions of suboscine taxonomy: (1) paraphyly of the Formicariidae with the tentative inclusion of at least some rhinocryptids (Liosceles, Rhinocrypta, and Scytalopus… 

Corrigendum: Morphology‐based phylogenetic analysis and classification of the family Rhinocryptidae (Aves: Passeriformes)

TLDR
The first morphology-based phylogenetic study of the Rhinocryptidae is presented, using 90 anatomical characters scored for all genera of the family and representatives of all families of the infraorder Furnariides.

Phylogeny and phylogenetic classification of the antbirds, ovenbirds, woodcreepers, and allies (Aves: Passeriformes: infraorder Furnariides)

TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of the Furnariides sampling 124 genera supports the Melanopareidae and Grallariidae as distinct from the Rhinocryptidae and Formicariidae, respectively and erects new family‐group names for clades having high branch support across methods.

TLDR
The combination of high rates of cladogenesis and high morphometric diversity in traits related to feeding and locomotion suggest that the clade Furnariidae‐Dendrocolaptidae represent an authentic continental adaptive radiation.

A New Species of Scytalopus Tapaculo (Aves: Passeriformes: Rhinocryptidae) from the Andes of Central Peru

TLDR
A new species of Scytalopus tapaculo is described from the temperate humid montane forests of Junín Department, Peru, which has a unique song that differs strikingly from that of any known ScyTalopus species, consisting of a rapidly repeated series of ascending phrases.

The correct name of the antpitta clade

TLDR
Phylogenomic analyses have shown that the antpitta clade (Myrmotheridae) is sister to a clade consisting of the tapaculos (Rhinocryptidae Wetmore, 1926; not Wetmore 1930, as listed by Bock 1994), the ground antbirds (Formicariidae G. R. Gray, 1840), and the ovenbirds and woodcreepers (Oliveros et al. 2020).

A New Subspecies of Brown banded Antpitta Grallaria Milleri from Antioquia, Colombia

TLDR
Although the new antpitta appears likely to be a phylogenetic species, subspecies rank is assigned conservatively and its taxonomic rank and status will require review should an extant population be discovered.

First description of a nest of the Rufous-tailed Antthrush Chamaeza ruficauda

I report a nest of Rufous-tailed Antthrush discovered on 9 December 1998 in the Serra dos Orgaos National Park, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil at the altitude of 1950 m. The nest was located in a natural

Reweaving the Tapestry: a Supertree of Birds

TLDR
This is a first attempt at a supertree of both extinct and extant birds, not intended to be utilised in an overhaul of avian systematics or as a basis for taxonomic re-classification but provides a strong basis on which to base further studies on macroevolution, conservation, biodiversity, comparative biology and character evolution.

Geographical variation in slate-crowned antpitta Grallaricula nana, with two new subspecies, from Colombia and Venezuela

TLDR
Slatecrowned Antpitta Grallaricula nana is a small member of the Grallariidae found in the northern Andes that is probably being second only to Rhinocryptidae in the number of new taxa described recently.

PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS OF ANTPITTA GENERA (PASSERIFORMES: FORMICARIIDAE)

TLDR
The remaining antpitta genera form a fully resolved and well-supported monophyletic lineage with two major subclades, which allow for a new interpretation of the morphological characters used in previous studies.

A NEW SPECIES OF ANTPITTA (FORMICARIIDAE: GRALLARIA) FROM THE SOUTHERN ECUADORIAN ANDES

TLDR
Initial results from DNA sequence analyses place the new species in a well-supported clade that includes Grallaria nuchalis (which is syntopic with the new spe- cies), G. hypoleuca, G. watkinsi, and G. ruficapilla.

NEST AND EGGS OF THE TEPUI ANTPITTA (MYRMOTHERA SIMPLEX)

TLDR
Nest structure and eggs of the Tepui (Brown-breasted) Antpitta are described for the first time and are similar to those described for other members of the ground antbirds (Formicariidae).

A NEW SPECIES OF ANTPITTA (FORMICARIIDAE: GRALLARIA) FROM THE EASTERN ANDES OF COLOMBIA

TLDR
The Cundinamarca Antpitta (Grallaria kaestneri sp. nov.) is described from a locality at upper subtropical elevations of the eastern slope of the Eastern Andes of Colombia; its vocalizations, foraging behavior, and probable breeding season are described.

Ecological niche differentiation in the Aphelocoma jays: a phylogenetic perspective

TLDR
A second molecular data set is presented – 500 bases of the ND2 gene – and analysed cladistically to arrive at a new hypothesis of phylogenetic relationships of Aphelocoma jays and it is shown to consist of drastic departures from rate-uniformity and ecological niche conservatism.

A cryptic new species of antpitta (Formicariidae: Grallaria) from the Peruvian Andes

TLDR
An exception to previously known patterns in the genus Grallaria is reported, which occurs sympatrically in at least two localities along the forested Amazonian slope of the Eastern Andes in Peru.

The anatomy and systematic position of the antpipits Conopophagap and Corythopis

TLDR
It is recommended that Conopophaga be returned to its former position, near Grallaria in the Formicariidae, and Corythopis must be moved from the Furnarioidea to the Tyrannoidea; its proper position appear s to be in the family Tyrannidae.
