Orden CUCULIFORMES Familia Cuculidae Coccyzus melacoryphus Vieillot (cuclillo canela).
La familia mas representada fue Columbidae con 5 especies, representando el 9% del total de las mismas; le siguen en ese orden: Emberizidae y Tyrannidae, con 4 especies, Cuculidae, Icteridae, Parulidae, Psittacidae, Thamnophilidae y Trochilidae con 3 especies y Alcenididae con 2 especies (Figura.
Cardinalidae), y otras con muchas especies en la familia (Emberizidae, Cuculidae, entre otras), presentan una cobertura relativamente baja (< 50%).
Moreover, because of the controversy regarding the monophyly of Neomorphinae, we decided to perform a comparison using a dense taxa sampling approach, studying and comparing a further 508 specimens in 73 species, including all genera of Cuculidae (except Scythrops, Pachycoccyx, Cercococcyx, Caliechthrus and Microdynamis).
We used cranial osteological features with post-cranial, ecological and behavioural characters from Hughes (1996, 2000) to perform a cladistic analysis of Cuculidae (Posso & Donatelli 2006) and it showed that Tapera and Dromococcyx should be placed in the most basal branch within an arboreal assemblage (Coccyzinae, Phaenicophaeninae and Cuculinae).
Lastly, these problems indicate that the position of Tapera and Dromococcyx within Cuculidae was problematic in our study (Posso & Donatelli 2006) and justify further cladistic analysis.
