The Paramythiidae is a very small bird family restricted to the mountain forests of New Guinea. It comprises two species:

  • Tit Berrypecker Oreocharis arfaki
  • Crested Berrypecker Paramythia montium

These are colourful medium-sized birds which feed on fruit and some insects.

These species were formerly included in the Dicaeidae, but DNA-DNA hybridization studies showed these species were related to each other but distinct from the flowerpeckers.
