1 For removal from Pipridae or Tyrannidae, establishment as a possible separate family, and relationships to Eurylaimidae, see Lanyon (1985) [Lanyon, 1985 #2320], Sibley & Monroe (1990) [Sibley, 1990 #3636], Chesser (2004) [Chesser, 2004 #745], Irestedt et al. (2006) [Irestedt, 2006 #9540] and Moyle et al. (2009) [Moyle, 2009 #11813].
2 The name Sapayoaidae was used by Dickinson (2003) [Dickinson, 2003 #9533] but this was not validly introduced; so Irestedt et al. (2006) [Irestedt, 2006 #9540] did so with the spelling Sapayoidae.
