Genus Collocalia

Genus Aerodramus

Genus Hydrochous

Genus Schoutedenapus

The Papuan Swiftlet is apparently closer to the Waterfall Swift than to the other Aerodramus species and probably best placed in a separate genus (Price et al., 2005), whereas Thomassen et al. (2005) advocate reuniting all swiftlets in Collocalia. Schoutedenapus is one of the least-known genera of birds.
