The Family Vireonidae is further organized into finer groupings including:
- Subfamily (1): Vireonidae
- Genus (7): Cyclarhis · Erpornis · Hylophilus · Pachysylvia · Pteruthius · Vireo · Vireolanius
- Species: ZipcodeZoo has pages for 284 species and subspecies in the Family Vireonidae.
The peppershrikes are two species of passerine bird found in tropical Central and South America. They form the genus Cyclarhis, part of the vireo family. [more]
The White-bellied Erpornis (Erpornis zantholeuca) or simply Erpornis is a species of bird. It is the only member of the genus Erpornis. This bird is found in Bangladesh, Bhutan, Brunei, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist montane forests. [more]
Hylophilus is a genus of bird in the Vireonidae family. It contains the following species: [more]
The Shrike-babblers is a group of small birds in the genus Pteruthius. They are native to the Indomalayan ecozone, and traditionally placed in the family Timaliidae, although genetic work suggests they belong in the otherwise New World family Vireonidae. Most species are found in montane forests, with some species descending down to lower altitudes during the winter. [more]
The vireos () are a group of small to medium-sized passerine birds (mostly) restricted to the New World. They are typically dull-plumaged and greenish in color, the smaller species resembling wood warblers apart from their heavier bills. They range in size from the Choco Vireo, Dwarf Vireo and Lesser Greenlet, all at around 10 centimeters and 8 grams, to the peppershrikes and shrike-vireos at up to 17 centimeters and 40 grams (Forshaw & Parkes 1991).

Vireolanius is a genus of in the Vireonidae family. It contains the following species: [more]
At least 16 species and subspecies belong to the Genus Vireolanius.
