The greenish schiffornis (Schiffornis virescens), also greenish mourner or greenish manakin (not to be confused with the green manakin), is a species of bird in the family Tityridae. It has traditionally been placed in the manakin family, but evidence strongly suggest it is better placed in Tityridae, where now placed by SACC.


It is found in southern Brazil, also eastern Paraguay, and extreme northeastern Argentina. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical moist montane forests, and heavily degraded former forest.
