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.
