While the male of most ѕᴜЬѕрeсіeѕ are scarlet to orange with black upper parts, the females are usually yellow with greyish olive upper parts. Several former ѕᴜЬѕрeсіeѕ have been elevated to ѕрeсіeѕ status in recent works. These include the orange minivet. All ѕᴜЬѕрeсіeѕ have the same habits of gleaning for insects and are often seen in mixed-ѕрeсіeѕ foraging flocks, usually foraging in small groups, high up in the forest canopy.
