Cyornis is a genus of birds in the Old World flycatcher family Muscicapidae most of which are native to south-east Asia.

It contains the following species:[1]

Seven of the above species, all with "jungle flycatcher" in their English names, were previously placed in the genus Rhinomyias but were moved to Cyornis based on the results of a 2010 molecular phylogenetic study.[4] There are also "jungle flycatchers" in the genus Vauriella.[1]
