Tephrodornis is a bird genus in the family Tephrodornithidae, commonly known as the woodshrikes. They were formerly placed in the Campephagidae (cuckooshrikes) by some, as they are far more conventional in habitus than the rather bizarre typical helmetshrikes of genus Prionops. They may be rather close to the diverse vangas but for the time being are placed in the Tephrodornithidae.
There are four species:
- Large woodshrike, Tephrodornis gularis The scientific name of this is in dispute, and it is commonly referred to as T. gularis. or T. virgatus.
- Malabar woodshrike, Tephrodornis sylvicola
- Common woodshrike, Tephrodornis pondicerianus
- Sri Lanka woodshrike, Tephrodornis affinis
