Cariamae is a suggested name for a group of flightless birds that have been around for 63 million years. The group includes the families Cariamidae, Phorusrhacidae, Bathornithidae and Idiornithidae. Though traditionally considered as a suborder of the Gruiformes, based on both morphological and genetic studies that they may belong to a separate group of birds and their closet living relatives are the Falconidae, Psittaciformes and the Passeriformes.
