The Bougainville Thicketbird (Megalurulus llaneae) is a bird species. Previously placed in the "Old World Warbler" family Sylviidae, it does not seem to be a close relative of the typical warblers; probably it belongs in the newly-recognized grass-warbler family Megaluridae. It is found only in Papua New Guinea. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical dry lowland grassland.
