Picoides (pied woodpeckers)

Wikipedia Abstract

Picoides is a genus of woodpeckers (family Picidae) that are native to Eurasia and North America. The genus Picoides formerly contained around 12 species. In 2015 a molecular phylogenetic analysis of nuclear and mitochondrial DNA sequences from pied woodpeckers (the tribe Dendropicini) found that three existing genera (Picoides, Veniliornis and Dendropicos) were polyphyletic. After the creation of six new monophyletic genera and the subsequent rearrangement in which most of the former members of Picoides were moved to Leuconotopicus and Dryobates, only three of the original species remained.
