Bar-winged flycatcher-shrike taxonomy

The family Tephrodornithidae was proposed in 2006 on the basis of a molecular phylogenetic study by Moyle which showed a close relation between the genera Hemipus, Tephrodornis and Philentoma.

The genus Tephrodornis comprises four species and was first described by William John Swainson FLS, FRS (8 October 1789 – 6 December 1855), an English ornithologist, malacologist, conchologist, entomologist and artist in the year 1832.

The genus Philentoma comprises two species and was first proposed by Thomas Campbell Eyton JP, DL (10 September 1809 – 25 October 1880), an English naturalist, in the year 1845.

The genus Hemipus comprises two species, viz., H. hirundinaceus and H. picatus. This genus was first described by Brian Houghton (1 February 1800 – 23 May 1894), a pioneer naturalist and ethnologist, in the year 1844.

The species Hemipus picatus was first introduced by Colonel William Henry Sykes, FRS (25 January 1790 – 16 June 1872), an English naturalist, politician, Indologist and ornithologist, in the year 1844.

The species Hemipus picatus comprises four subspecies, viz., H. p. picatus (Sykes, 1832), H. p. capitalis (Horsfield, 1840), H. p. leggei Whistler, 1939 and H. p. intermedius Salvadori, 1879.
