The family of Cupwings or Wren-babblers have only recently been separated from the former extensive family of the Timalias and elevated to family rank due to DNA tests. They occur exclusively in the oriental region. They are tiny birds with a body length of 7.5 cm to 10 cm. They have an extremely reduced, usually invisible tail. They are usually close to the ground between dense undergrowth. They mainly live on insects and small arthropods. The nest is spherical with an entrance on the top.
