Aequorlitornithes is a clade of waterbirds recovered in a compressive genomic systematic study using nearly 200 species in 2015. It contains the clades Charadriiformes (waders and shorebirds), Mirandornithes (flamingos and grebes) and Ardeae (Eurypygimorphae and Aequornithes). Previous studies have found different placement for the clades in the tree.
