The greater scythebill (Drymotoxeres pucheranii) is a species of bird in the Dendrocolaptinae subfamily. This species is found at very low densities in highland forest in the Andes, ranging from southern Colombia to far northern Peru. It has traditionally been included in Campylorhamphus together with the other scythebills, but it is closer to the scimitar-billed woodcreeper, leading to the description of the new genus Drymotoxeres.
