The blue vanga (Cyanolanius madagascarinus) is a bird species in the family Vangidae. It is in the monotypic genus Cyanolanius.[2] It is found in Comoros, Madagascar, and Mayotte, where its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests and subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests.[1]

A taxon found on the Comoros Islands, the Comoro blue vanga is considered by most authorities to be a subspecies of the blue vanga (C. m. comorensis), though it has occasionally been considered a separate species, Cyanolanius comorensis.
