Braun's bushshrike (Laniarius brauni) is a species of bird in the family Malaconotidae. It is endemic to Angola. An alternative name for this bird is the orange-breasted bushshrike, but the English name is also used for Chlorophoneus sulfureopectus.

The common name and Latin binomial commemorate the German collector R. H. Braun who collected in southern Africa.[2]
