It is endemic to the Neotropical region and comprises 51 % of the Suboscines passerine species and 11 % of the Passeriformes species (Claramunt, 2010).

These species were all insectivorous suboscines (Plain Antvireo Dysithamnus mentalis, Star-throated Antwren Rhopia gularis and Plain-winged Woodcreeper Dendrocincla turdina), which suggests that this group may be generally overestimated in studies of bird captures with conventional GL nets.
05) and consisted mainly of Suboscine passerine species (Table 1).
Additionally, GL nets tended to under or overestimate the relative abundance of at least 1/4 of the captured species, favoring insectivorous Suboscine species.
Instead Kroodsma has provided a meticulous compendium of what is now knowable through the prism of individual experience about the singing of oscines and suboscines in the context of their life cycles and environments.
In contrast, the suboscines do not culturally transmit song (Kroodsma and Konishi 1991), and perhaps as a result they do not hybridize as often (Graves 1992).

In general, Suboscines Passerine birds are more closely-related to forested landscapes, and Oscines usually are more linked to open areas (Willis, 1979; Sick, 1997).
