Neomixis Sharpe, 1881
Proceedings of the Zoological Society of London Pt1 p. 195

Neomixis is a genus of small forest birds that are endemic to Madagascar.

The genus was introduced by the English zoologist Richard Bowdler Sharpe in 1881. The type species is the stripe-throated jery (Neomixis striatigula).[1] The genus was formerly placed in the Old World babbler family but is now considered to belong to the family Cisticolidae.

The genus comprises three species:[2]

Stripe-throated jery (Neomixis striatigula)
Common jery (Neomixis tenella)
Green jery (Neomixis viridis)

Another species the wedge-tailed jery (Hartertula flavoviridis) was until recently placed in this genus but biochemical studies suggest its true relationships lie elsewhere.
