Large cuckooshrike (Coracina macei)

Coracina is a large genus of birds in the cuckooshrike family Campephagidae.

The genus was introduced by the French ornithologist Louis Pierre Vieillot in 1816.[1] The type species was subsequently designated as the white-bellied cuckooshrike by the German ornithologist Jean Cabanis in 1850–1851.[2][3] The name Coracina is from the Ancient Greek korakinos meaning "little raven", a diminutive of korax meaning "raven".[4]

The genus formerly included many more species. It was split based on the results of a molecular phylogenetic study published in 2010. A major clade was moved to the resurrected genus Edolisoma and a smaller group of Asian and Indian Ocean species moved to the genus Lalage.[5][6]

The genus contains the following 22 species:[6]
